DAVIS (CBS13) — The mother accused of murdering her 5-year-old daughter pleaded not guilty to charges against her on Monday.

Aquelin Talamantes, 29, made her first court appearance in a Yolo County courtroom, surrounded by a crush of media.

The mom was quickly escorted into the courtroom to face a judge on charges that she killed her daughter on Thursday, who was found dead in the trunk of Talamantes’ car.

The investigation began earlier that day in Davis, when police say her family called to report Talamantes and 5-year-old Tatiana Garcia missing

Talamantes looked confused and dazed as she scanned the courtroom audience on Monday, but had little to say about the charges she faces.
