Quinton Simon’s mother Leilani has pleaded not guilty to murdering toddler Georgia
The mother of Quinton Simon, the 20-month-old Georgia boy who disappeared last month, pleaded not guilty after being charged with his disappearance and murder, according to a report Wednesday.
A public defender entered the lawsuit on behalf of Leilani Simon, 22, in Chatham County Court. Simon was initially supposed to appear in court himself, but according to the information, ultimately did not do so FOX 28 Savannah. The judge refused bail and she will not be released from prison on bail.
Simon first reported her son missing at 9 a.m. on October 5. He was last seen at the Savannah home she shared with her boyfriend, her 3-year-old son and her mother – who had custody of both children. She reportedly told police she thought someone had taken her son.
No motive was released, but her mother, Billie Jo Howell, previously said she doesn’t trust her daughter.
“She didn’t always do the right thing,” Howell admitted in an interview.
Police eventually said they believed Quinton was dead and spent weeks searching a landfill site for his remains, which they believe they found on November 18.
