LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A woman police said gave birth and left her newborn to die in a trash can in a Kohl's restroom has been released from jail.

On Wednesday Jessica Price was released from Louisville Metro Department of Correction on her own recognizance until her trial.

On August 8 homicide detectives responded to Kohl's Department Store on Standiford Plaza Drive, where Price was employed, and discovered the infant's body. Police said the child appeared to be full-term and healthy.

Price is charged with murder, tampering with physical evidence and abuse of a corpse. She is scheduled to be back in court on October 8.
