CORPUS CHRISTI - Laura Day plead not guilty today to charges of capital murder, child endangerment and injury to a child related to the drowning death of her 6-year-old stepson last fall.
Police say Day allowed Taylor Syring to swim without a life jacket near Bob Hall Pier in October.
She told investigators she found the boy laying face down in the water. Rather than performing CPR or calling 911, Day told investigators she placed the boy's lifeless body in her car and drove 9 miles to Bay Area Hospital.
During the drive, she passed up two fire stations where paramedics could have attempted to save the boy's life.
Day was ordered to remain in the Nueces County Jail for the time being as Judge Bobby Galvan ruled she could not be counted on to follow the terms of a bond.
Last month two detectives testified they saw Day shopping at the mall while wearing a disguise. The conditions of her bond required her to stay away from areas where children gather.
