Mother accused of child abandonment will be back in court next week

LONDON, Ky. (WYMT) - A mother who allegedly abandoned her 10 month old child will be back in court next week.

Rachel Kilburn was arrested when her infant daughter was found dead in a Laurel County home.

Investigators say she left her baby with someone who had no experience caring for a newborn while she was out partying.

Kilburn pleaded not guilty.

The judge said he would not budge on her $250,000 cash bond and called the case "heinous."
