RED LAKE FALLS, MN (WDAZ)--An accused baby killer may soon get out of jail.

30-year-old Sarah Kortan did not want to talk to WDAZ as she made her initial appearance in Red Lake County.

She's accused of killing 2 month old Josephine last month inside her Red Lake Falls apartment.

Kortan was caring for the baby for the biological mother - her cousin who is in jail.

The medical examiner determined the child had multiple skull fractures and her eyes had been detached.

Kortan's lawyer says that finding by the medical examiner is inaccurate and his client is ready to have her story heard.

In court papers she claims she dropped the baby on accident.

On Wednesday, the judge reduced the bail from no bail to $50,000.
