LUBBOCK, Texas -

 A woman set to go to trial for capital murder has been indicted on a different charge. 

Madison Rodriquez, 23, was charged in 2015 for the dead of her one-year-old son Mason. She's now facing an additional charge of aggravated assault enhanced with domestic violence. 

Officers found the child not breathing near east 25th and Redbud in June of 2015. According to her arrest warrant, Rodriquez told investigators she was holding the baby while arguing with her boyfriend, Charles Flournoy. 

She said she threw the child onto a concrete floor causing him to strike his head. Records show she didn't seek medical attention for the infant because "she was not sure if the insurance had started and they did not want a big medical bill".

If convicted of her original charge Rodriquez faces the death penalty or life in prison without parole. 

If a jury finds her guilty of the new charge she faces a life sentence with the possibility for parole.
