Women Arrested over Dead Newborn Found in Athens Dumpster

A 19-year-old woman and her 54-year-old mother have been arrested in connection with the dead infant found dead in a garbage bin in Petroupoli, an outlying northwestern suburb of Athens.

The infant was found in the rubbish, wrapped in a plastic bag, on Feb. 26.

According to police sources, the 19-year-old confessed that she was the baby’s mother and that she did not want to keep the child so, with her mother’s help, they strangled the newborn and threw it into the garbage.
