St. Joseph County, Ind. The woman accused of leaving her newborn in a dumpster will be allowed to travel outside of the state for her brother's engagement party.
32-year-old Purvi Patel is charged with felony neglect of a dependent after her baby was found dead in a dumpster behind Moe's Southwest Grill last month.
She bonded out shortly after formal charges were filed, but has to wear an electronic monitoring device and can't leave St. Joseph County without prior approval.
On July 31, the state objected to Patel's request to travel to Chicago for her brother's engagement party.
But, Judge Elizabeth Hurley filed an official order last week saying Patel can attend the celebration under certain conditions.
