Lloydminster, Sask. Woman Pleads Guilty After Newborn Baby Found Dead At Landfilll


LLOYDMINSTER, Sask.- A woman has pleaded guilty to disposing of a newborn baby's body in a Lloydminster-area landfill.

The 27-year-old woman, who has not been identified, was charged by Alberta RCMP in April with disposing of evidence related to the death of a child during birth.

The infant's remains were found last November after police got a call about a woman having medical difficulties following birth and the newborn being unaccounted for.

More than 30 officers were involved in a five-day search of the landfill before the remains were discovered.

The woman will return to court Feb. 28 for a sentencing hearing.
