TOPEKA, Kan.-- A mother's plea and prison sentence for the death of her newborn baby will stand.

KMAN radio reports a Pottawatomie County judge Wednesday denied 27-year old Rhonda Dunlap's motion to withdraw her plea.

Dunlap was sentenced last October to 72 months for murder and six months for endangering a child.

The charges stem from the death of Dunlap's newborn child in July of 2006 in Wamego. The judge also refused to reconsider Dunlap's sentence and ordered her back to custody.
