Mom Throws Baby In Trash
According to Mail Online
A woman gave birth to a baby girl, put her in a plastic bag and threw her in a dumpster ‘like common household trash’, a court heard today.
Shavaughn Robinson, from Richmond, Virginia, gave birth to the baby in the bathroom of an office building last week, put the baby in the toilet bin and covered it with paper towels.
She then allegedly tied up the bag and threw it in the dumpster behind the building.
Robinson worked in the building as a massage therapist and said she was having stomach problems before going to the bathroom.
The 27-year-old was seen cleaning up blood and acting suspiciously in a bathroom stall by a cleaning crew.
The janitor found the baby’s body that evening. She died of asphyxiation.
Robinson, who is charged with concealment of a dead body, told police after she was arrested: ‘I don’t want people thinking I killed that baby for nothing,’ according to The Times Dispatch.
It is unclear what she meant.
The baby’s death has been classified as a homicide and further charges are expected to be filed.
Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Janae Craddock asked that she be held without bond as she was considered a flight risk.
What a horrible way to die. Poor baby.
