POLK COUNTY, Iowa- The adoptive grand-mother of Sabrina Ray has pleaded not guilty to an escape charge.
Corrections officials say 64-year-old Carla Bousman briefly walked away without permission from a minimum security setting in Mitchellville last month.
She's serving a 20-year prison sentence on charges related to the starvation death of Sabrina Ray in 2017. Bousman is one of several members of Ray's adoptive family serving prison sentences after being convicted of charges in the teen's death.
The Perry teen weighed just 56-pounds when she was found unresponsive in the family's home.
