Mother pleads not guilty to killing daughter

Date: 2008-10-01

WINCHESTER, Ky. (AP) -- A central Kentucky woman has pleaded not guilty to killing her 4-year-old daughter.

A judge ordered 34-year-old Jessilyn Robinson of Winchester to be held at the Clark County Jail on $250,000 bond.

Robinson was arrested Sept. 25 and charged with murder in the death of Faith Raeanne Robinson, who died of a closed head injury on May 29. Robinson told paramedics that Faith had fallen in the bathtub, but investigators say the child died from abuse.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports that a preliminary hearing is set for Oct. 8.

Attorney Andrew Stevens of Lexington was appointed to represent Robinson. A number for Stevens could not immediately be located.
