WARRENSBURG, Mo. (AP) - A woman accused of second-degree murder after her baby’s body was found in a cave in northwest Missouri is back in jail after she didn’t attend a pretrial hearing.

Twenty-year-old Latasha Wilson was arrested Monday after she did not show up for a court hearing. She is scheduled for trial June 4.

Prosecutors allege Wilson gave birth to a boy in January 2014 in a bathroom at work. They contend the baby was born alive but drowned in a toilet. Authorities say she and another person took the body to a research cave on the University of Central Missouri campus, where two students found it, partially burned, on March 4, 2014.

The Warrensburg Daily Star-Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1IMXXGB ) Wilson is being held at the Johnson County jail on $250,000 cash-only bond.
