TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A Tulsa woman who told police she was pregnant with 12 kids has waived her preliminary hearing on charges of child abuse and neglect after allegedly allowing her children to live in a trash-strewn home with no running water.

Court records indicate the woman will be arraigned July 27 in district court. She has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The Associated Press is not naming the woman in order to protect the identities of the children.

Police records show the woman has had at least 33 Oklahoma Department of Human Services referrals and investigations and some of her children have been in and out of state custody throughout their lives.

The woman initially told police she had 12 children, but authorities so far can only account for seven.
