Court documents say Black Elk was too intoxicated to watch over her child, who died at 3 weeks old in her care.
Earlier this month, she pleaded not guilty to those charges, and a bond for $25,000 was set and still stands.
In court Wednesday afternoon, KX News learned Black Elk was allowed to attend her baby’s funeral and went to a doctor’s appointment Wednesday as well.
Black Elk’s attorney told the court that she’s having a difficult time in jail, but she’s now taking medication and is looking into seeing a psychiatrist.
She’s scheduled to appear in court again on July 22 for a pretrial conference.
