"Chill Pill" Mom Pleaded Not Guilty

The Milwaukee woman charged with giving her toddler a fatal dose of painkillers is pleading not guilty.

Bail was also reduced from $7,500 to $5,000 during this morning's arraignment for Margarita Balderas. 

Balderas is charged with second degree reckless homicide after police say she gave her daughter a mix of drugs in an attempt to calm her down or put her to sleep last summer.
