A Leavenworth woman has pleaded not guilty in the death of her 19-month-old son.

Catherine Smith, 31, is charged with second-degree murder after her son's death in November 2018. She pleaded on Monday.

Smith allegedly left her son in a room where the temperature exceeded 90 degrees without checking on him for an extended time.

Smith is free on bond. Court records indicate she was released Sept. 16 on a $25,000 bond.

The trial is scheduled for Jan. 21.
