REDFORD TOWNSHIP, MI (AP) – A 25-year-old woman has been charged in the slaying of her newborn son whose body was found hidden at a suburban Detroit freight management business.
The Wayne County prosecutor’s office says Kimberly Pappas of Wyandotte is expected to be arraigned Friday on felony murder, premeditated murder and first-degree child abuse charges.
The boy was delivered full-term on March 31 in the restroom of the Redford Township company where Pappas worked as a temporary employee. The newborn then was sealed in a plastic bag and placed in a tote bag near Pappas’ desk.
Another employee contacted authorities who rushed the newborn to an area hospital.
The medical examiner’s office ruled the death a homicide by suffocation.
Court records did not list an attorney Friday for Pappas.
