As part of her plea deal after killing her first child, Melissa Mitin had to tell police what she did to her second child.
Now we know.
Mitin confirmed what a jailhouse informant had previously said: that on December 18th, 2014, she gave birth to a baby boy at her parents’ Okemos home, smothered it, killing it, then bagging him up and dumping him in gas station’s garbage can. She says she put some pajamas on top to make it look like the bag only contained clothes.
Then, Mitin says, she used her dad’s credit card to fill up with gas and left.
That’s all according to documents and an audio recording made by Meridian Township police. 6 News obtained copies of the documents and recording now that the criminal case against Mitin is over.
A judge sentenced her to a minimum of 27.5 years in prison earlier this week for killing her first child, a baby girl, on December 26, 2013.
6 News will have more on this story, including excerpts from the documents and recording, tonight on 6 News at 6 & 11.
