Wood Co. woman accused of killing baby pleads not guilty

Wood County (WAOW) — 22-year-old Marylinn Feher is accused of killing her newborn baby.

In court Wednesday, she pleaded not guilty to several charges including first-degree intentional homicide.

The child’s father, 19-year-old Allen Rice is charged with child neglect leading to death. He was also in court Wednesday.

A judge found probable cause to move forward in both cases.

Back in April, officials say they found the infant tied up in a blanket and plastic bag in the Marshfield Medical Center parking lot.

According to court documents, Feher admitted to strangling the baby and intentionally hitting the baby’s head on a toilet.

Several witnesses were brought in to testify Wednesday including the sheriff’s deputies who responded to the scene and interviewed the parents of the infant.

Both will be back in court August 22.
