Four arrested for selling baby

Indianapolis police have arrested four people, including a convicted child molester, as part of an alleged baby-selling scheme. According to investigators, Michael Overby, 57, who was convicted of child molestion in 1984, and his sister-in-law, Debbie Overby, 50, tried to purchase a baby from Rose Faucett, 36, and Phillip Hester, 58. Faucett has a history of prostitution, police say. Michael Overby falsely signed a paternity affidavit at Wishard Hospital, claiming to be the baby's biological father, according to police. All four face charges of neglecting a dependent and child selling, and more charges could be filed.
