August 12, 2010

A teen mother accused of giving birth in her apartment and then getting rid of the baby in the trash was sentenced yesterday to four years in a mental health unit and 18 months of probation. Tasha Miller, 19, gave birth to a baby in her Indianapolis apartment in May. She claimed the infant died after delivery and that she put the body in a shoebox and tossed it in a dumpster. The baby's remains have never been found.
