    The mother came forward admitting it was her baby!!!! From what it sounded like, she was starving the baby girl. They do not know how long she has been dead. Mother has been charged with homocide, endangering the welfare of a child, neglect, concealing a crime and a few other charges. Her boyfriend has been charged as well, with concealing a crime.

    This woman also has two other children, who are now with family members and is currently pregnant with her 4th child. This story makes me sick!!! If she didn’t want this child, she easily couldve dropped her off at a church, hospital, police station or other “safe haven” rather than doing what she did.
