Woman pleads not guilty to child abuse

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The woman accused of beating and throwing her boyfriend’s toddler to the floor also pleaded not guilty Friday.

Police say 24-year-old Ashley Montano injured the 2-year old so badly last month that she needed emergency surgery.

Officers say Montano told them she did it because the little girl was throwing a tantrum.

Montano is charged with child abuse.

She’s being held on a $100,000 cash or surety bond.
