An Evansville woman pleads not guilty to kidnapping and robbery.
Tamela Thomas, 37, made her first court appearance Tuesday morning.
Kentucky State Police tell us they began investigating after the victim reported that Thomas robbed him in Henderson before locking him in the trunk of her car.
Troopers say the victim and Thomas were acquaintances traveling together.
They say the victim used the trunk release to escape.
Thomas was arrested during a traffic stop in Evansville last Thursday and was taken to the Henderson County Jail.
A pre-trial hearing has been set for March 6th.
