Whitley County woman, boyfriend face judge for child's murder

WHITLEY COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - A Whitley county woman and her boyfriend have both pleaded not guilty in the death of her two-year-old daughter.

Trina White and Mark Hyden entered the plea during an arraignment hearing Wednesday morning in Whitley District Court.

White was arrested Monday afternoon just moments after her daughter's funeral. Williamsburg police arrested Hyden earlier that day.

Investigators say the child, Madisyn Davis, died last week of blunt force trauma and asphyxiation.

The couple will be back in court on December 4 for a preliminary hearing to determine if there is enough evidence to send the case to a grand jury.
