SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — A northern Indiana judge has set a September trial date for a woman charged in the death of her newborn, whose body was found in a restaurant trash bin.

The South Bend Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1or6dRk ) that 32-year-old Purvi Patel appeared Wednesday before a St. Joseph County judge who set her jury trial for Sept. 29. She’s pleaded not guilty to neglect charges in the infant’s July 2013 death.

Court documents say the Granger woman took drugs she obtained from Hong Kong to induce an abortion, but an autopsy found that the baby was born alive about 12 weeks premature.

Police say the infant’s body was found in a trash bin outside a Mishawaka restaurant after Patel went to a hospital.
