GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) -- A mother accused of abandoning her newborn infant in the toilet of a South Carolina sports arena is expected in court.

Prosecutors say 26-year-old Jessica Blackham is scheduled to appear in court in Greenville on Wednesday afternoon. She was indicted earlier this year on charges of unlawful conduct toward a child and infliction of great bodily injury to a child.

Blackham was arrested in February 2011 after two workers at the Bi-Lo Center in Greenville found a newborn baby boy up to his neck in toilet water and called 911.

The 6-pound baby survived and was placed in foster care. Blackham was arrested, and her parents told a judge she did not know she was pregnant and didn't remember giving birth.

Blackham also has another child.
