A Laramie woman accused of child abuse pleaded not guilty in Albany County District Court today, Feb 7.

Kaylean Bunn is now out on a $10,000 signature bond after Albany County District Court Judge Tori Kricken agreed to modify the terms of the bond, initially a $10,000 cash bond. Judge Kricken said Bunn was not a flight risk as her two children are in Laramie, in the custody of the Department of Family Services.

Bunn was arrested Dec. 12 after a Laramie Police officer’s investigation into a report of child abuse.

The officer responded to a report that a student at Slade Elementary School who had visible marks and bruises on his neck and head.

After interviewing the child, the officer interviewed Bunn, whose stories about where the child’s injuries came from were inconsistent, initially claiming that the child has been at his great-grandparents home in Colorado at the time the injuries were incurred.

Bunn eventually admitted that she had lied about the child’s whereabouts, according to court documents.
