The Davis mother of the 5-year-old girl who died after being found in the trunk of a car, pleaded not guilty in Yolo County Superior Court today.

Aquelin Talamantes, 29, has been charged with willfully and unlawfully killing a human being with malice and aforethought. She's also been charged with assault on a child under 8 with force likely to produce great bodily injury resulting in death.

Police found the girl in the trunk of Talamantes' car Thursday after being tipped off by relatives.
