16-year-old Antonia Lopez, the teen accused of throwing her newborn child out of her apartment window Friday, officially made her first court appearance on Tuesday to face her charges.
Lopez is being charged as an adult and was charged for a felony child abuse resulting in death of a child.
Lopez is being held on a $500,000 bond.
The defense asked for a 24/7 monitoring ankle bracelet for Lopez to wear but prosecution rejected it.
Records showed that Lopez was reported missing nine times in 2015.
Lopez is currently a junior at Central High School.
