BRENTWOOD, N.H. -

Prosecutors are pursuing additional charges against a New Hampshire woman who police say failed to get help for her beaten and burned 3-year-old son.

Twenty-three-year-old Jessica Linscott, of Plaistow, has been held on $100,000 bond since her arrest at Universal Orlando in November on multiple child endangerment counts. Police say she failed to seek medical treatment for her son after he was beaten by her boyfriend -- 27-year-old Roland Dow.

Prosecutors say they're pursing witness tampering charges against the couple, saying they've recovered home video of the boy being coached before a wellness check about what he could say about nosebleeds and spankings.

A judge on Wednesday denied Linscott's request to have phone contact with her son, but said she could write to him.
