(Scroll down for video) A young woman was arrested on charges of attempted murder after allegedly throwing her newborn baby into her neighbor’s garbage bin, police in Utah said.
The Salt Lake City Police Department said that the 23-year-old woman who was accused of dumping her baby in the trash, told police that she was afraid to tell her parents about the pregnancy.
She thought that by killing the newborn it will solve all her problems. Alicia Marie Englert was arrested on Tuesday, and was charged with attempted murder.
The baby girl was in critical condition at a Salt Lake City hospital. The mother told police that she threw the baby into the garbage bin about an hour before police discovered her.
Englert said that the baby had not received any medical care or food. The baby was discovered by a woman who heard what she thought was a cat crying in the garbage.
The girl was airlifted to the hospital.
