A Monroe judge has denied bond for a mother suspected of killing her 5-year-old daughter.
According to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, 5-year old Heaven Woods died as a result of blunt force trauma to the abdomen. An autopsy revealed Woods also suffered a number of other injuries, new and old.
