Chicago – A Chicago area teen was arrested and charged after reportedly killing her newborn baby because he resembled his birth father. As reported by the Chicago Tribune, Ana Rosa Mora, 18, was charged with first-degree murder after putting the baby in a plastic bag before placing him outside of her home and going to bed. The child was later found dead by a construction worker.
According to prosecutors, Mora committed the act due to fear that her boyfriend would break up with her after finding out that her ex-boyfriend was the biological father.
The Cook County medical examiner’s office determined that the death of the child was caused by asphyxia and possible exposure.
During a court hearing in which bail was set for Mora, her public defender said she was previously set to graduate from high school in June, and had planned to begin college in the fall.
