A Lexington woman, accused of dumping her baby in the trash appeared in court on Thursday afternoon.

Her attorney told the judge Brown will waive her preliminary hearing meaning the case will now go to the grand jury.

Police say she threw her baby in a dumpster behind a gas station along I-64 in Shelbyville. Police are still looking for a woman, caught on surveillance video, who may have been a witness to the alleged crime.

Police say they found the newborn baby's body because of a tip from doctors at a Lexington hospital. Brown reportedly went to the hospital and doctors alerted police because they said there were obvious signs she'd given birth.

Brown has pleaded not guilty to murder. She is being held on $250,000 cash bond.

    Being young is no excuse or whatever the circumstances, God saw fit for that baby to have life. How someone could ever harm a child in that manner and just toss it like garbage is beyond imagining. That baby could have possibly turned her life around, if given the chance to live. So shameful that our world has become so wicked and preversed. It's so sad :(

    This comment is in response to Jules' comment insinuating that people from eastern Kentucky are not capable of writing coherently. Your comment is inappropriate and not appreciated. But notwithstanding that fact, I would like to offer you the following bit of constructive criticism: if you're going to call someone out on their failure to proofread a comment, please proofread your own comment before posting it. "Proofread" is one word, not two. Secondly, "anymore babies" should be "any more babies"; "anymore" means "at present" while "any more" in the context you're using it means more babies in the future. Also, your second sentence actually is two separate sentences separated by a comma. A semi-colon or a period would be the proper punctuation instead of a comma.

    I think she looks mentally ill. aside from that, lock her up, put plexi glass on the walls with baby's autopsy pics for her to have to stare at all day.

    To Jules, Some people from Eastern Ky can write and even SPELL. Just because you are from Lexington the crime city of KY, doesn't mean you are any better than people in Eastern KY. People like you make me SICK!!!
