Aleshia Marie Shaw, 22, went before Forrest Co. Justice Court Judge Robert Davis today.

She is charged with felony contributing to the neglect of minor child resulting in death.

Her three-year-old son was found dead in a vehicle Sept. 4.

She said in court she lived with her dad and grandmother in Stone County but had moved to Forrest Co. trying to get custody of her son. After the accident, she moved back to Stone Co. where she was arrested Friday and transferred to Forrest Co.

Per the state attorney's request, Davis set Shaw's bond at $100,000.

The maximum penalty if convicted for this crime is a $5,000 fine and five years in jail.
