A woman awaiting trial on child abuse charges is back in jail. According to court documents Erin M. DeSpain didn't show up to court on Monday and turned herself in after a judge issued a warrant for her arrest.

Investigators say DeSpain abused her own two–month old baby.
She plead not guilty in December and her trial is set to start in April.

She's also facing child abuse charges in Fort Collins. Despain is being held on a $120,000 bond. She will be back in court tomorrow and may face new charges for missing court.
