PULASKI, Va. (AP) - A judge has denied bond for a Pulaski County woman whose 5-year-old son was found dead in a septic tank.

Media outlets report that Pulaski County Circuit Court Bradley Finch said he believes Ashley Jennifer White is a flight risk.

Finch’s decision came Tuesday on a bond appeal by White. A Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court judge had denied White bond last week.

White and her husband, Paul Thomas, each face two counts of felony child abuse and neglect.

One charge involves the couple’s son, Noah, whose body was found March 26 in the septic tank on the family’s property. Prosecutors say they’re awaiting the results of autopsy to determine the cause of death.

The other charge is linked to the couple’s infant daughter.
