The woman accused of kidnapping newborn Abigale Woods and slashing the throat of the infant’s mother has pleaded not guilty to charges of first-degree assault, child kidnapping, and two counts of armed criminal action. 36-year-old Shannon Torrez has been arraigned in Franklin County Circuit Court. The judge in the case was asked by the woman’s attorney for a reduction of the one-million dollar bond, but refused to reduce it after the prosecuting attorney argued Torrez poses a threat to the public. The baby was snatched from her mother’s Lonedell home last Friday.
