A Harrison County woman accused of child neglect appeared in court Monday morning.

Sabra Nichole Hardman pleaded guilty to three counts of an 11-count indictment, including counts seven and 10, child neglect creating a substantial risk of injury, and count 11, gross child neglect creating a risk of substantial injury.

Judge James Matish did not accept Hardman's plea, although he will take it under advisement.

David Mazza, Hardman's co-defendant, will go to trial on Aug. 19. Hardman has a hearing scheduled for Aug. 22 at 11 a.m.

Hardman and Mazza were arrested in February when the couple's five-month-old baby was hospitalized after suffering five broken ribs and bleeding in its brain, according to Harrison County Sheriff's Department investigators.
