DANVILLE, Ark. (AP) — An Arkansas woman has pleaded not guilty to manslaughter in connection with the death of her 10-month old son after the boy and her husband were found dead in the Ouachita Mountains after a four-day search.

Investigators have said Brooke Floyd, 21, of Greenwood, and her husband took the boy into a rugged part of the mountains near Blue Mountain Lake while having drug-induced hallucinations about being chased.

The Courier reports (http://bit.ly/1usQHXo ) that Floyd, who was previously released on a $50,000 bond, didn’t attend Thursday’s arraignment. A judge tentatively set the case for an Oct. 2 pretrial hearing.

Floyd was found in a ditch in the area and said she was separated from her husband and son in the treacherous terrain.

Fall for many high school seniors means deciding where to apply for college and maybe a trip to a guidance counselor. Lukasiewicz, 18, remembers vividly the day Northwestern University began emailing acceptance letters. A chatroom devoted to Northwestern hopefuls on a site called “College Confidential” was buzzing. The popularity of social media sites and advancements in analyzing lots of data we put online mean today’s high school seniors have more tools than ever to help them find the right college, though it’s still an inexact science.
