Schoolgirl, 16, who is accused of throwing her baby girl out of a window moments after giving birth asked for a ride and a ‘huge favor’ on Facebook just 30 minutes before paramedics arrived and found infant dead
A previous post dating back to January (pictured) shows the girl with a baby doll for what appeared to be a school assignment on parenting, with the caption: ‘This thing so annoying’
A 16-year-old girl accused of throwing her newborn child out of the window asked for help on Facebook just before authorities arrived.
Antonia Lopez, of Omaha, Nebraska, is being charged as an adult in the death of her daughter.
Authorities believe she went into labor on Friday, gave birth in her bedroom and threw her baby girl from the second floor of her apartment building.
Lopez then told her mother what had happened, according to authorities. Lopez’s mother found the baby in the grass, called 911 and gave the newborn CPR until paramedics arrived, police said.
Grandmother indicted when her two-year-old grandson dies from horrific burns after ‘climbing into scalding mop water’, and then waiting six days to call 911
A Texas grandmother has been indicted for felony murder of her two-year-old grandson.
Police say she waited at the home six days before calling authorities to report her grandson had been burned by boiling water.
‘I’ve got a two-year-old who looks like he’s in shock,’ you can hear Flores say in a 911 call released by Haltom City Police on Thursday. ‘He’s having trouble breathing.’
Haltom City police officers initially apprehended Patricia Flores, 43, in April after issuing a warrant for her arrest and setting her bond at $75,000.
A toddler was abused since birth, and officials ignored it, a lawsuit claims. Now she is dead.
When 2-year-old Glenara Bates died, she was 13 pounds — a weight more typical for a 3-month-old.
The day she was killed, prosecutors say her father swung her and slammed her against a door. She cried … and then silence.
The abuse Glenara faced likely wasn’t a shock to county officials in Ohio — she was briefly placed in foster care after she was born in January 2013.
Still, officials placed Glenara back in her parents’ Cincinnati home, where, court records say, she endured abuse at the hands of her parents for the rest of her short life.
A federal civil rights lawsuit filed by Glenara’s maternal grandmother, Desana Bradley, says that social services officials knew the toddler was being abused — and still left her with her parents.

Bingham left the home on foot during the call but was picked up by an officer nearby.
Paramedics and state troopers then entered the woman’s residence and found little Rilan’s body decomposing in his bed.
He had been dead for more than a week.

King also admitted several counts of assault and related charges for burning, beating and starving the boy.
Assistant District Attorney Nicole Blumberg said Myls’ father Okee Wade left his son with King at a luxury apartment in Hell’s Kitchen, New York, in the middle of December 2013.
Wade never returned and ended up behind bars for fraud.

A man and a woman were arrested Monday in connection with the worst case of child abuse Mesa police officers have seen in a while.
“This is just one of those cases that just shocks the soul,” Mesa Police Chief John Meza said during a news conference Tuesday morning. “The level of neglect was so harsh she could not stand on her own,” he added.
“Officers who responded to the scene were troubled by the conditions and having to witness this and without delay we have resources for them, also,” Meza said. “When officers went in, all they saw was the top of the child’s head in the trash bag,” Meza described. “The child had duct tape over her mouth, around her arms, her hands, and legs.”
The 3-year-old child, who had allegedly been offered up for sex, was rescued Monday after authorities found her in a trash bag surrounded by feces in a closet. She was also malnourished.
“The suspect wanted to have sex with other people and said he put the child in the closet because she was too loud,” officers said.
