SAN DIEGO -- A woman accused of killing her baby faced a judge Friday as prosecutors detailed her alleged crime.
Julie Reynolds, 36, was arraigned on one count of first-degree murder. She pleaded not guilty.
Reynolds was arrested in connection with the case on Wednesday. Reynolds, who is originally from Colorado, came to Rancho Penasquitos, along with her five children, ages 18 months to 15 years old, at the request of her sister and brother-in-law, prosecutors said.
Deputy District Attorney Tracy Prior alleged Reynolds hid her pregnancy, denying it when her family asked her directly if she was pregnant. The couple became suspicious after they noticed she had lost weight, Prior said. The brother-in-law noticed blood on the carpet and later found bloody towels in their trash can.
At that point he notified police, Prior said. When officers arrived, Reynolds took them to a bedroom and the newborn's remains were found in a black backpack.
The prosecutor said the boy, 6 pounds, 19 inches long, had been smothered by his mother's hand. Prior said Reynolds has a documented history with Child Protective Services in two states other than California.
Reynolds is being held at Las Colinas Detention Facility on $1 million bail. Her five other children are now in the custody of child protective services.

Save A Life by Angie Kassabie
I URGE ALL MY FRIENDS TO READ & SHARE THIS; YOU COULD SAVE A LOVED ONES LIFE BY KNOWING THIS SIMPLE INFORMATION!!! Stroke has a new indicator! They say if you forward this to ten people, you stand a chance of saving one life. Will you send this along? Blood Clots/Stroke - They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the Tongue: During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) ...she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes. They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening. Jane's husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6:00 PM Jane passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Jane would be with us today. Some don't die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead. It only takes a minute to read this. A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke...totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough. >>RECOGNIZING A STROKE<< Thank God for the sense to remember the '3' steps, STR. Read and Learn! Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke. Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions: S *Ask the individual to SMILE. T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently) (i.e. Chicken Soup) R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS. If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher. New Sign of a Stroke -------- Stick out Your Tongue NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to 'stick' out his tongue. If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke. A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this e-mail sends it to 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved. I have done my part. Will you?
