LEXINGTON, Ky. (WHAS11) -- The woman accused of selling her baby boy for a pickup truck then fleeing to Florida, appeared in court on Tuesday in Lexington.

Heather Ann Kaminsky was arrested July 18 at a Winn-Dixie supermarket in Putnam County, Fla. She was extradited back to Kentucky, where she faces charges of human trafficking.

Police say after her baby was born in January, she sold him to Jaimee and Jeremy Brown from Laurel, Ky., allegedly for $800 and some meth.

The couple is also charged with human trafficking. They have pleaded not guilty.

Kaminsky says she was giving the baby to its father. In court she said that she can prove Jeremy Brown is the child's father because he is listed on the birth certificate.
