SOUTH BEND, Ind.--- Another court date has been set for a Michiana mother charged with neglect for leaving her baby with a stranger while she did drugs.

Prosecutors say Heather Gipperich brought her then 9 month old daughter with her as she bought heroine.

The 31-year-old later told police she got high and left her baby with a woman she just met.

The baby was missing for hours, but later turned up safe with the woman in Elkhart.

Gipperich was in court this morning where another hearing was set for July 31.
