COPY-Woman charged with killing newborn baby, putting her in trash

Associated Press - July 11, 2007 4:24 AM ET

OAKLAND PARK, Fla. (AP) - A woman is charged with first-degree murder after she confessed to stuffing her newborn baby in trash can.

The 22-year-old Lindsey Scott was released from the hospital yesterday.

Fire rescue responded to her home Saturday after receiving a call that the woman was semiconscious, vomiting and bleeding in a shower. Doctors discovered an umbilical cord and contacted authorities.

The Broward County Sheriff's office said the baby's body was found in a plastic trash bag in the garbage can. An autopsy ruled the death a homicide by asphyxiation.
