MARSHFIELD, Wisc. — A prosecutor in Wisconsin states that he plans to file a murder charge against a woman who has now admitted to strangling her newborn son while beating his head into the toilet because she “didn’t want the baby.”
According to reports, Marylinn Feher, 22, gave birth sometime after midnight on April 6. Her boyfriend, Allen Rice, 19, later drove her to the Marshfield Medical Center as she was bleeding heavily.
Feher denied giving birth, but hospital workers did not believe it. According to the Wisconsin Rapids Tribune, a social worker called the Wood County Sheriff’s Department to report that a baby was missing.
Police later identified Rice’s vehicle in the hospital parking lot, and discovered the newborn wrapped in a towel inside of a tied garbage bag. The infant was rushed into the emergency room, and was revived for a time, but ultimately died from his injuries.
Local radio station WSAU reports that Rice told police that the two thought the baby was born dead, and that he had tried to perform CPR on the newborn after pulling his son from the toilet water upon delivery.
He said that he wrapped the baby in a towel and then in a plastic bag, which he put in the back of his vehicle, but tripped on the way, dropping the infant on the ground.
The child had mud, leaves and twigs on its body when found by police.
