ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- The Florida Department of Children and Families has taken custody of a mother's 2-year-old son a day after the woman's other child died from what she was says was a hit-and-run accident.

WFTV-TV reports that DCF placed Maryanne Schwartz's child in custody following a hearing on Sunday after signs of malnourishment and bruising were observed on both of her children.

Florida Highway Patrol is investigating the Friday death of Schwartz's 3-year-old daughter, Yeliani Schwartz-Ojeda, outside of an Orlando apartment complex. Authorities say the child died after being admitted to the hospital with injuries that doctors said were consistent with being struck by a car.

Schwartz called 911 and told authorities her child was hit by a car in the parking lot.
