NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A Mississippi woman has been arrested on a charge that she offered to sell her infant son to a Louisiana woman she met through an online classified ad.

Authorities say 23-year-old Bobbie Jo Stojic of Bay St. Louis was freed on $5,000 bond after her Oct. 29 arrest on a felony charge of offering to sell a child.

Stojic allegedly offered to sell her 4-month-old son for $5,000 in a text message sent last month to a woman in Kenner, La., who answered her Craigslist ad for baby clothes.

Hancock County Sheriff's Office detective Brandon Normand says Stojic denied the allegations after the other woman notified the Mississippi Department of Human Services.

A phone number for Stojic wasn't in service Tuesday. It wasn't immediately clear whether she has an attorney.
