The Oklahoma woman who allegedly left her autistic grandson at a Greenwood County rest area shortly after Thanksgiving is now starting her court process in Kansas.


A request to modify the bond for Janie Gill was denied during her first appearance in Eureka on Tuesday. Gill, 68, faces charges of child endangerment and interference with law enforcement. She was requesting a lower bond so she could get a hip replacement.

Greenwood County Sheriff Heath Samuels says Gill left her teenage grandson at the US Highway 400 rest area near Beaumont in late November and then gave false information to law enforcement about how the teenager arrived at that location. The teenager was found without money, medication or food. Gill has denied abandoning the teenager.

Gill's next court date is May 10.
