MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – For now, a Minnesota county will stay involved with the care of a baby with HIV.

A judge in Mower County has been hearing the case involving Rico Martinez-Nagel for the last two days.

Rico’s mom has HIV. Her parents took her off medication when she was a baby after suffering serious side effects.

Mower County took Rico after they worried he wouldn’t be medicated. After seven weeks in a hospital he was allowed to go home.

But a judge Tuesday said for at least the next six weeks, Rico’s parents must still Skype with the county twice a day while they give him his medicine.

WCCO first shared Rico’s story last month.
