Givens pleads not guilty

A not guilty plea is entered for the woman accused of killing a Jefferson City child.

Quatavia Givens, 26, entered the plea Tuesday in a Cole County Courtroom. She faces a charge of felony abuse or neglect of a child leading to a death after telling investigators 4-year-old Darnell Gray was either abducted or ran away last October. He was later found dead near the Louis Circle neighborhood.

Givens’ attorney has also requested a change of venue in the case.
