OAHU, HI (Meredith) – A 13-year-old girl in Hawaii was arrested for second-degree murder after her one-day-old infant was found dead in a trash can.
The girl was arrested Thursday but has since been released, pending investigation. She reportedly turned herself in to police.
The baby was found in the trash can in February, but the death was just recently classified as a homicide, according to Hawaii News Now.
The 13-year-old girl allegedly threw her baby away in order to keep her pregnancy a secret.
