Karima Jiwani had her first court appearance Saturday where prosecutors asked the judge to deny her bond for fear she is a flight risk and could intimidate witnesses.

Jiwani’s attorney argued that as a woman with a husband and three children, the 40-year-old would not likely leave the state, saying the issue at hand was an example of Jiwani experiencing psychosis and postpartum depression in 2019. Ultimately, the judge denied Jiwani’s bond.

Jiwani was arrested earlier this week and is accused of criminal attempt to commit murder, first-degree cruelty to children, aggravated assault and reckless abandonment in the case surrounding “Baby India.”
