LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The Louisville woman charged in connection with not feeding her children is pregnant.

On Aug. 28, a Jefferson County grand jury indicted Stephanie Adams, 24, on two counts of criminal abuse. Louisville Metro Police say Adams allowed her twins, a boy and a girl, to be severely malnourished and medically neglected. The one year olds weighed just 11 and 15 pounds.

During a Sept. 2 court appearance, Adams pleaded not guilty and told the judge she was expecting another child in November.

Adams is being held on a $10,000 bond and was ordered not to have contact with her twins. She is due back in court in Sept. 26.
