A mother faced a judge Saturday morning after being charged with abuse of a corpse for what happened to her youngest daughter.
19 Action News has learned India Parker admitted to cops she threw her dead child's body out with the trash.
Kaliyah Parker vanished in 2006, when she was five-years-old. She would be 10 now, but friends and relatives say the child has not been seen in years.
We are told India would always make excuses to explain the girl's absence.
India, meantime, is no stranger to the system. In 2001 she was charged with child endangering. Those charges though were dropped after she went through parenting classes.
Multiple sources also tell 19 Action News that Parker has had at least one child taken away then given back by social workers.
The judge set Parker's bond at $10,000.
