ALOHA, Ore. -- The mom arrested in Aloha Monday after she fled Seattle with her endangered newborn appeared in court Tuesday.
Baby Lillian is now with Child Protective Services in Oregon. Her mother, Trina Curry, 33, was charged with resisting arrest and interfering with a police officer, for allegedly trying to stop deputies from taking the infant.
The baby was born in Seattle in July, but discovered in Aloha after the Washington County Sheriff's Office received a 911 call saying the mother and baby were with relatives there.
King County's Sheriff's deputies had been searching for the baby. They said Curry checked out under an assumed name from Highline Medical Center. She was not allowed to be with her seven other children based on allegations of abuse, neglect, and mental health issues. Lillian was her 8th child.
Curry pleaded not guilty in court Tuesday.
The baby's father, Quandra Powell, was also a concern for law enforcement. The sheriff’s office said Powell has warrants out for his arrest for drug and parole violations.
