A judge granted Shavaughn Robinson a $10,000 bond during a hearing Monday morning.  Robinson was charged with felony concealment of a body.

A janitor said he found Robinson’s infant daughter’s body wrapped in plastic and paper towels inside a dumpster behind the Lee Medical Building on Monument Avenue.

Prosecutors said they plan to appeal the bond ruling.
