A Rogue River woman accused of trying to kill herself by carbon-monoxide poisoning with a child in her car faced a judge for the first time.

49-year-old Kyla Duncan was arraigned in a Jackson County courtroom Monday evening on attempted murder charges of a 10-year-old girl.

"Count one charges you with attempted murder," the judge said. "That's a Class A Felony, exposing you to a maximum sentence up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $75,000."

While Duncan refused to speak at during her arraignment, she physically shook her head to respond to the judge and plea "Not Guilty."

Upon the conditions of a release, the court imposed a no-contact order on the child, the child's father, and their residence.

Duncan's bail was set for a $1 million. Her preliminary hearing is scheduled for Feb. 19.
