GREENVILLE, Texas (AP) - A grand jury in northeastern Texas has indicted the mother of a 7-week-old baby whose body was found at a gas station earlier this year.

The Hunt County grand jury indicted Stephanie Leanne Flynn on a count of abuse of a corpse without legal consent in the death of Alexiana Stevenson. The Herald-Banner newspaper reports the indictment came Friday and was made public Monday.

Flynn remains free on $50,000 bond. Her attorney, Elisha Hollis, declined to comment Monday on the indictment.

The grand jury declined to indict the child's aunt, Shawn Elise Flynn, who was arrested with the mother on Jan. 8 after the infant's body was found at the gas station in Greenville, Texas.

An autopsy report classified it as "a sudden unexplained infant death."
