Zinah Jennings appears in court on August 8, 2012.
Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Zinah Jennings, the mother of missing Columbia toddler Amir Jennings, has given birth to a second child.
Sources confirmed to News19 that the woman had a baby girl at 3 a.m. at Palmetto Richland. The judge in her trial later confirmed the birth, and said that the mother and child are healthy. They are expected to leave the hospital Sunday.
Jennings, 24, has been on trial this week on a charge of unlawful conduct toward a child in the disappearance of her son. Amir Jennings was last seen in late November.
Columbia police say Zinah Jennings has not given them information on where the child may be.
During testimony Thursday--which Zinah Jennings was present for--a friend of Zinah's gave information about her state of mind. The woman testified that in the weeks before the child's disappearance, Zinah Jennings stopped playing with her child and changing his diapers.
Her defense attorney, Hemphill Pride, announced Friday that he will move for a mistrial when court resumes next Tuesday.
Jennings faces up to 10 years in prison if she's found guilty of child neglect.
