Charleston , Kanawha County , West Virginia
A New York woman pleaded not guilty Thursday to neglect charges in Kanawha County and waived her right to a speedy trial.
Meleny Kranwinkel will face a trial next year. She is charged with child neglect creating substantial risk of bodily injury and death.
Kranwinkel was arrested in June after a relative sent disturbing pictures to her son's father. Charleston police said Kranwinkel denied involvement. The child's mother also told police her relative was alone with her child for 30 minutes.
Kanawha County Circuit Court Judge Paul Zakaib allowed Kranwinkel to return to White Plains, N.Y., where she works at Red Lobster, on the condition she keeps in contact with her attorney and makes all meetings in West Virginia.
Her personal recognizance bond was set in Kanawha County Magistrate Court for $2,500. Kranwinkel is due back in circuit court Feb. 3, 2014.
