17-Year-Old Charged with Unlawful Disposal of Human Remains

A 17-year-old has been charged with unlawful disposal of human remains after a stillborn baby was found in a York landfill.

The teenager appeared in York County Court Friday and was charged as an adult.  She will enter a plea June 1.  If convicted, she faces up to 5 years in prison.

Court records say she gave birth to a stillborn girl in January, then put the body in a trash bag and placed it in an outside trash can.
