A Winchester mother is still in jail after pleading not guilty Wednesday afternoon to killing her adopted daughter.
Jessilyn C. Robinson, 34, was charged last week for the death of her daughter, 4-year-old Faith Raeanne Robinson, on May 29. Police waited for the final autopsy report before filing charges.
Wednesday afternoon, Jessilyn Robinson's attorney Andrew Stephens entered a not guilty plea on her behalf and requested a reduction of her $250,000 cash bond. Since her daughter's death, social services became involved and she has been living separately from her family, he said. She also has not missed an appearance in family court and has followed the directions of the court, he said.
"I am aware of the extreme serious and severe nature of this case," Stephens told Clark District Judge Earl-Ray Neal. "If she had chosen to flee, she could have done so."
