[...] if the facts prove out to what (prosecutors) are saying, she's probably got some mental problems. Lewis, who appeared in court in an orange jail uniform, leg chains and handcuffed to a waist chain, did not speak except to say that she understood the charges against her and her rights. Lewis could face life without parole or the death penalty if convicted. er attorney said after Tuesday's hearing that so much of the case hinges on hearsay, admissions that Lewis allegedly told the child's father.
