A teenager pleaded not guilty Saturday to shoplifting charges, but those could be upgraded as authorities try to figure out what happened to a baby whose dead body was found in the teen's shopping bag.

Tiona Rodriguez, 17, was arrested after a security guard at a Victoria's Secret made the grim discovery as she was leaving the store.

Meanwhile, the medical examiner says an autopsy was inconclusive and that more tests are required to determine how the baby died.

Both Rodriguez and a friend, 17-year-old Francis Estevez, were released after Saturday's arraignment.

Rodriguez told investigators she was carrying the baby after a miscarriage on Wednesday and she didn't know what to do.
