Mother Pleads Not Guilty

A Lexington woman accused of abandoning her newborn baby on a porch said she didn't do it.

Ashlee Stephens pleaded not guilty in court on Friday morning on a charge of abandonment.

Police say the 23-year-old left her day-old baby in a laundry basket in front of a home on Lincoln Avenue. She reportedly didn't know the people who lived there.

Stephens will be back in court next week
