According to Fox29 in Philadelphia, an Allentown woman is facing a criminal homicide charge, after police say she suffocated her newborn baby boy, put him in a garbage bag, and tossed him into the toilet tank.
26 year old Amanda Hein is accused of committing the alleged crime at Starters Pub on Route 378 near Bethlehem. Police say she went into labor, and never sought medical attention. Instead, they say, she killed her son.
According to Pennsylvania law, Hein could have gone to any hospital and dropped the baby off with no questions asked. Police right now are trying to locate the baby’s father.
