HAMMOND, Ind. (STMW) – A northwest Indiana woman pleaded not guilty Monday morning to selling a child to a man, who also pleaded not guilty, to make child pornography, the Post-Tribune is reporting.

During an arraignment hearing for the two, U.S. District Judge Andrew Rodovich set a trial date of May 13 for both Natisha Hillard, 24, and Christopher M. Bour, 39, both of Gary, Ind.

Hillard was charged last week with one count each of selling a child for child pornography and allowing a child to take part in child pornography. An indictment filed last week in the U.S. District Court in Hammond claims Hillard sold the child to Bour starting when the child was just 6 months old.

FBI agents started investigating Bour when another woman tipped them off that Bour had asked her if she wanted to watch him sexually touch a child.

From there, agents discovered pictures of Bour with an infant and another woman, who they say is Hillard, holding the child.
