FRESNO, Calif.—A California foster mother has pleaded not guilty to murder for the suspected shaken-baby syndrome death of an infant girl placed in the woman's care by the Fresno child protective services agency. The Fresno Bee says 23-year-old Jovannee Reynolds wept Tuesday as she entered the pleas to murder, assault causing death and child endangerment involving another foster child in her home. Bail is set at $2 million.
Seven-week-old Mikayla Tabin died in September at Children's Hospital Central California. Investigators say death was caused by severe shaking.
Her next court appearance is April 5.
