LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A district judge denied a Lufkin woman's attempt at getting out of jail on a lower bond during a motion hearing Tuesday morning.

Amanda Jane Braley, 24, is charged with injury to a child in connection to a January 2010 investigation into injuries to her four-year-old child, when Braley brought her to Woodland Heights Hospital.  According to the arrest affidavit, medical staff tried frantically to revive her. Braley told the E.R. she was suffering from the flu and falling down in the bathtub.

After being stabilized, the 4-year-old was flown to Memorial Hermann Texas Medical Center in Houston.  According to the arrest report, Lufkin Police received hospital records indicating she had "suffered life threatening medical neglect and significant physical abuse."

Braley told hospital workers that the 4-year-old was being watched by Micah King while she was at work.  During a police interview with King, he allegedly admitted to slapping her on one occasion and knocking her into some chairs.

King pleaded guilty in August to endangering a child, accepting an eight-month state jail sentence.

According to court records, an order to surrender was issued for Braley on January 4, since her attorney, Ryan Deaton, had withdrawn her bond.

Braley did not show up for her jury selection on January 9, according to court records. Jail records show she surrendered to confinement later that month.

Braley had reached a plea agreement on the case, which involved a probation sentence, but Bryan denied the plea deal in Nov. 2011.

In Tuesday's hearing, Bryan said he was denying the motion for the lower bond because Braley has other criminal charges pending. She has a drug charge, which she is set for jury selection on April 23.

She is being held in the Angelina County Jail on bonds totaling  $24,000.
