Prosecutors told KHOU 11 that Katharine White's bond is now $40,000.

HOUSTON — The bond for the mother accused of being involved in her 10-week-old baby’s death has increased.

Katharine White was given a $5,000 bond Tuesday night when she appeared before a judge, but her bond has since been increased to $40,000, according to prosecutors.  

White is charged with injury to a child by omission while Jason Robin, the child’s father, is charged with murder.
