The woman charged in connection with the death of a toddler at a day care center in Lincolnshire last week will plead not guilty.That's the word from the lawyer for 22-year-old Melissa Calusinski. She's being held on $5 million bond.

Police say she threw 16-month-old Benjamin Kingan to the ground last week.

The toddler was found unresponsive at a Lincolnshire child care center and died later of head injuries.

Calusinski is due back in court February 17.
