Shelbyville woman to make plea agreement in abandoned child case

The attorney for a Shelbyville woman accused of abandoning her nonverbal autistic child along a road near Cincinnati says a plea agreement is coming.

Investigators say that Heather Adkins dropped the 5-year-old off in February and drove away. He was later rescued by strangers who took him to authorities. In court yesterday, Adkins lawyer said a deal has been worked out with opposing counsel though terms have not been released and Adkins has yet to sign-off.
