Leavenworth woman makes first court appearance

LEAVENWORTH, Kansas (AP) – A Leavenworth woman accused of leaving her infant son in an alley made her first court appearance after she missed the start of her child endangerment trial earlier this week.

Elizabeth A. Michaud was scheduled to go on trial Monday for child endangerment. She’s accused of leaving her son in the alley for at least three hours last May.

But Michaud, who was out on bail, didn’t show up Monday. She was arrested Tuesday and made her first appearance Wednesday in Leavenworth County District Court.

Michaud said in court that someone at the court told her that her trial wasn’t scheduled until Tuesday afternoon.

Michaud’s new bond was set at $250,000 and a pretrial conference was scheduled for May 3.
