Mother Evaluated after Baby Dumping Incident
A mental health expert will examine a 19-year-old mother charged with dumping her three-week old daughter along a rural road for 12 hours, then lying to police.
Kendra Meaker of Toulon will be back in a Stark County courtroom November 16.
Meaker is charged with obstruction of justice and endangering the life of a child.
Prosecutors said last month, she abandoned her daughter and told police the baby was abducted, prompting an AMBER Alert.
She eventually told investigators she left the baby on the side of a road.
Meaker remains behind bars on a $100,000 bond.
