October 2, 2019

LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) — A 31-year-old Leavenworth woman has pleaded not guilty in the death of her 19-month-old son.

Catherine Smith is charged with second-degree murder after her son's death in November 2018. She pleaded on Monday.

The Leavenworth Times reports Smith allegedly left her son in a room where the temperature exceeded 90 degrees without checking on him for an extended time.

Smith is free on bond. Court records indicate she was released Sept. 16 on a $25,000 bond.

The trial is scheduled for Jan. 21.
