A Chesterfield County woman charged with murder after her 11-month-old daughter was found dead inside a box last month waived her bond hearing Thursday.

Breanna Lewis, accused of killing her 11-month-old daughter, will face a judge Thursday. Reporter Greg Suskin will have a live update from the courthouse at noon.

Nineteen-year-old Breanna Lewis is charged with homicide by child abuse in the death of her daughter, Harlee Lane Lewis. Lewis remained in jail Thursday, never stepping foot into the courtroom.

Harlee was found dead May 29 after investigators said Lewis falsely reported the girl had been abducted.  That story set off an Amber Alert until deputies found a diaper box near Lewis’ home.

Deputies said the child’s body was found inside the box, wrapped in a plastic bag.  Investigators still haven’t said exactly how the girl died.
