LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A Bullitt County woman has pleaded not guilty in the death of a newborn girl found dead in a Louisville department store trash can.
The 29-year-old Shepherdsville resident, Jessica Price, is charged with murder, tampering and abuse of a corpse. The Courier-Journal (http://cjky.it/15cOxTC ) said she is scheduled for a pretrial hearing in October.
Price is being held in Louisville on $100,000 cash bond. The newspaper said her lawyer didn't return a call seeking comment after she pleaded not guilty on Monday.
She is accused of leaving the Kohl's store, where she worked, and going home after giving birth in a bathroom and hiding the baby in a trash can. An employee who went to empty trash discovered the baby on Aug. 8.
