Lexington woman accused of child abuse pleads not guilty

A Lexington woman accused of abusing her 1-year-old daughter was released from jail on bond Wednesday.

Anna Eury, 19, pleaded not guilty in Fayette District Court to four counts of first-degree criminal abuse. She was arrested Tuesday after police found the injured child in her home while canvassing a neighborhood during an unrelated investigation.

According to court documents, Eury admitted to causing "cruel punishment and injuries" to her daughter, including a broken leg, fractured pelvis, broken ribs and a lacerated liver.

Eury appeared in Fayette County District Court on Wednesday, where Judge Julie Goodman lowered Eury's bond from $20,000 to $2,000 over objections from Assistant Fayette County Attorney Aimee Clymer-Hancock.

Conditions of Eury's bond are that she have no contact with the child and that she must live with her mother. She is scheduled to return to court Oct. 6 for a preliminary hearing.

Eury's attorney, Greg Kujawski, declined to comment after Wednesday's arraignment until he had time to review the case.
