BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - A judge has revoked the bond of a mother accused in the overdose death of her 2-year-old child, according to officials.

Whitney Ard, 28, pleaded not guilty to drug and gun charges during the bond hearing at the 19th Judicial Courthouse on Tuesday, Aug. 9.

In addition to revoking her bond, the judge ordered Ard to undergo substance abuse evaluation in 30 days, according to officials.

Last week, District Attorney Hillar Moore requested that Ard remain in custody and her bond be revoked.
