Police: Woman confesses to killing baby born in bar bathroom
PENNSYLVANIA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Investigators say a Pennsylvania woman has confessed to killing the baby she gave birth to while she was in a bar.
They say Amanda Hein delivered a baby in the bathroom, put it in a plastic bag and then placed it in a toilet tank.
Police say she then went back in to the bar and watched the end of a wrestling match.
They say the people she was with never knew what happened or that she was even pregnant.
"A child that was basically a full term baby born and whether it was one hour old, ten minutes old, or a year old. It's a person and this person's life was taken," said Northhampton County District Attorney John Morganelli.
Hein is being held without bail.
Prosecutors say they may seek the death penalty in this case.
