A Chicago woman is facing murder charges after police say she killed her newborn baby by wrapping it in a plastic bag and locking it in the closet.
Prosecutors believe 25-year-old Marisol Molina took 10 of the abortion pill Misoprostol Wednesday to induce labor.
After giving birth to the child, they say she ripped the umbilical cord with her hands before putting the infant in a robe and then a plastic bag in her closet.
Police were alerted to the crime after the woman’s boyfriend took her to the hospital because she didn’t feel well.
She initially denied being pregnant but confessed after doctors had to induce her placenta.
Molina admitted to the crime and directed officers to the closet where the child, a girl, was found dead.
The Medical Examiner’s Office concluded that the child was alive at birth saying.
“The little girl had air in the lungs and stomach, which indicated the baby was born alive and had taken some breaths.”
The placenta showed that she was 7 to 9 months pregnant with the child.
Mosoprostol is not meant to be taken after 9 weeks of pregnancy.
SMH…..there are some sick, sick people in this world.
