LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A mother accused of murdering her daughter eight years ago pleaded not guilty in court Wednesday. 

Jessica Martinez is accused of beating her 21-month-old daughter to death in 2008. Records show Christina Lopez suffered injuries to her abdomen, along with bruising and rib fractures.
