Arkansas woman pleads not guilty in mountain death
DANVILLE, Ark. (AP) - An Arkansas woman has pleaded not guilty to manslaughter in connection with the death of her 10-month old son after the boy and her husband were found dead in the Ouachita Mountains after a four-day search.
Investigators have said Brooke Floyd, 21, of Greenwood, and her husband took the boy into a rugged part of the mountains near Blue Mountain Lake while having drug-induced hallucinations about being chased.
The Courier reports that Floyd, who was previously released on a $50,000 bond, didn't attend Thursday's arraignment. A judge tentatively set the case for an Oct. 2 pretrial hearing.
Floyd was found in a ditch in the area and said she was separated from her husband and son in the treacherous terrain.Copyright 2014 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.
