(Scroll down for video) A woman was arrested on a charge of murder after allegedly killing her newborn baby because she did not want her family to know that she had sex out of wedlock, police in New York said.
The New York Police Department said that they have arrested 28-year-old Nausheen Rahman of Staten Island, after being accused of giving birth in her parents’ home before killing her daughter and throwing her into the trash.
Rahman was charged with murder and concealment of a human corpse. She was booked into jail, and is being held without bail at Rikers Island.
According to the police investigation, Rahman went to a hospital after giving on Saturday, but she told doctor that she never gave birth.
The doctors called the police, and they found the newborn in a trash bag outside of Rahman’s home.
During questioning, Rahman told the police that the baby moved after birth, but once she cut the umbilical cord, she stopped moving.
Although Rahman had seen a doctor about her pregnancy, she kept it a secret from her parents and two younger brothers.
Neighbors told police that the parents and two younger brothers had no idea that she was pregnant, and she often wore loose clothes to conceal her growing frame.
