LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) _ A northeastern Kansas woman accused of leaving her 2-month-old son alone in a stroller in a dark alley has told a judge she's a good mother.

Twenty-eight-year-old Elizabeth Michaud made the statement Monday during an appearance in Leavenworth County District Court. The Leavenworth woman is charged with aggravated child endangerment.

The Leavenworth Times reports a judge refused to release Michaud on her own recognizance, which would have let her leave jail without paying money. She remains in custody.

A Leavenworth resident spotted the stroller and the baby late on the night of May 3 in an alley about three blocks from Michaud's home. Police estimate the infant had been there at least three hours. He was slightly dehydrated.

Michaud told the judge Monday she was ``under the influence'' at the time.
