Mother charged with murder released from jail on house arrest

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The mother charged with murder after her baby was found dead in a trash bin is now out of jail.

Police say 29-year-old Jessica Price is on house arrest, after she gave birth to a healthy baby girl last month in the Kohl's bathroom where she worked, and placed her in the trash can.

In court on Wednesday, Price's attorneys asked the judge for her to be released, saying that she has no criminal history. Even though prosecutors objected, the judge put Price on house arrest.

The prosecutor says the discovery process now begins, where both sides exchange information about witnesses and evidence that will be presented at trial.

Price has pleaded not guilty to murder, tampering with physical evidence and abuse of a corpse.
