What a sick women who can do such a evil thing to a new born baby! If she didn't want the baby she could of took the baby to the hospital or the fire dept. I don't understand if your going to lay down and open your legs and have sex and get pregnant at least take birth control pills to not get pregnant and now she will suffer this horrible memory forever!

the saddest thing here is it is too late for anyone to help. first, tie her tubes, she should NEVER be allowed to have another child, i don't care what her reasons were, none are good enough. secondly, i don't believe she has enough brains to have horrible memories. PLEASE, she is an idiot! i hope she reads blog(assuming she can read) and realizes that NO-ONE is going to give her any break whatsoever. Heres hoping i am on her jury.

We need to have all the facts before jumping to judgement. First, the police/autopsy have NEVER said the baby was alive at birth or when she threw it away. She is only charged with throwing away a dead body (which is, in itself, horrible enough). I agree she could have taken the body to a hospital or fire station, but no one has even tried to give a reason why she did not. She was 19, which is legally an adult, but we don't know if she was developmentally disabled or just terrified at giving birth to a stillborn child. None of the facts have been revealed. Where is the father in all this? The police are not releasing the autopsy. We will have to wait to see if she accepts a plea, thereby avoiding a trial or even a courtroom hearing. We may never know all the facts of the case.

Im a young 21 year old mother myself and can't see my life without my daughter, who is almost 1 year old. there are times were i want to just pull my hair out. but, no matter how much i may get upset at myself cause i cant figure out what she wants. i could never do what she did to her child, if she knew that she didn't want her baby. then when she was giving birth or even before she had her, she should of got it workout so the baby could be adopted or put her on someone door step and ring the bell. but DON'T be going around beating her to death then dumping her like she is TRASH that was a life you just ended and I hope to god that the 19 year old little GIRL who is unfit to be a mother again of any child or babysit any child get the full max. sentences she can get.AND if she wants to have sex with anyone later down the road put yourself on birth control. this is also why people say that teen and other young mom shouldn't have children thanks for giving young mother's like me who love being moms a bad name!! people like you make me sick and I wish that you never have another child again!!!! because what you did to her show you dont deserve a second chance at being a mom and proof of that was found in the dumpster!!!

To Angel21: First of all, that mother has not been charged with hurting or killing the baby. The police haven't even admitted that it was a live birth! So where do you get that she BEAT it to death? That just did not happen. She is just being charged with throwing away the dead baby--which is terrible in itself--but no one has the right to call her a murderer or baby beater when the police themselves haven't released any such information. I get so frustrated with people who get a fragment of "information" and make up an entire scenario which has no basis in fact. There has been no information released by anyone which indicates she hurt the baby or that it ever even drew one breath. Had the baby been born alive and then thrown away, she would be a murderer. As it is, she is just a very sick, confused young woman who made a very bad choice.
