Fountain Inn, SC – A 41-year-old mother was arrested on murder charges after police said they found the decomposed remains of her baby in a container in her apartment.
Laurens County Sheriff’s deputies discovered the baby’s body on Monday when they were trying to evict Jamie M. Wilson from her Fountain Inn, S.C., apartment, according to Greenville Online.
The baby, estimated to be about 38 weeks old, had been decomposing inside a container, which was inside another container, for nearly a year, the county coroner told Greenville Online.
Wilson told investigators that the baby died when it stopped breathing in October 2016. Rather than seek help, she wrapped a hoodie around the body and placed it inside a trash bag before placing it in the bins.
On Friday, Wilson was charged with murder/homicide by child abuse.
