One of Taylor Rose’s grandparents made the discovery, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. A gun was found at the scene, and according to police Capt.

Mom Given 9 Years For Abandoning 8-Month-Old Daughter In Garbage Can

A mother from Elmira, New York has been sentenced to nine years behind bars for trying to get rid of her eight-month-old daughter by literally throwing her in the garbage last summer. The child, who was found in the trash, inside a plastic bag, outside a home 72 hours later, survived.

Harriette Hoyt pleaded guilty to attempted murder to get a lighter sentence, KRON 4 reports. If she didn’t take a plea deal, she could have faced up to 25 years in prison. She was 17 when she put her baby in the trash.

Hoyt signed an order of protection which prevents her from trying to contact her daughter for at least nine years. The girl, Sabrina, is reportedly doing well and is living with a foster family.

According to WNEP, Hoyt suffered from postpartum depression at the time of the incident.

6-Month-Old Baby Boy Dies After Dad Allegedly Bends His Body In Half

An Arizona infant died after his father allegedly bent his body in half out of frustration while he was trying to get the baby to stop crying, Fox News reported.

Robert Anthony Resendiz, 30, called emergency services on December 19, claiming that he had just woken up to find that his son had stopped breathing. Police performed CPR on the child until paramedics arrived, ABC 15 reported.

The boy was taken to Phoenix Children’s Hospital, where he died two days later on December 21.

Doctors told police that the 6-month-old boy had injuries that were “not survivable,” including lacerations in his liver and pancreas, a wrist fracture and pattern bruising on his thigh. 

Resendiz allegedly told police that he found his son unresponsive and not breathing, but the boy’s mother said that when she went to work that morning, her son was awake and alert, Arizona Central reported. 

When police confronted Resendiz,

More Than $20K Raised For 4-Month-Old Baby Who Was Dragged From Bed And Attacked By Raccoon

Over $20,000 has been raised for the family of a 4-month-old girl who was attacked by a raccoon inside her home. Ashley Rodgers of Philadelphia said her baby was viciously attacked on Wednesday inside the family’s studio apartment, The Associated Press reported. The family had just moved into the home days prior.

“My daughter was laying on the bed sleeping and I went to take my son to the bathroom. We heard a sound upstairs and we see a raccoon run down the steps,” Rodgers recalled to CBS Philadelphia. “When I finally got to her, she was laying on the floor so it had dragged her off the bed, across the room, and she was bleeding and crying and her whole face was red.”

The baby girl, Journi Black, had to undergo four hours of surgery as a result of the attack, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. She

Teen Mother Arrested After Posting Facebook Photo Of 6-Month-Old Baby Brandishing Knife

A teen mother from San Diego allegedly uploaded a disturbing photo to Facebook of her 6-month-old baby brandishing a knife, which was nearly as big as the child’s arm. She also reportedly posted a video that showed her crying baby being repeatedly smacked in the head.

Fellow Facebook users who watched the upsetting footage immediately alerted police, and Jowi Victoria Morales, 18, was arrested last Thursday for outstanding domestic violence charges. It is unclear if the assault is being conducted by Morales or another person, and it is unknown if the charges are related to this incident.

“Very, very, very sad,” neighbor Guillermina Contreras told NBC7. “I do know that in that house there was trouble.”

The Child Abuse and Domestic Violence investigators are reportedly looking into this case. According to Fox5 San Diego, the child has not suffered any injuries.

Mom Sentenced To 5 Years After Putting 4-Month-Old Baby In Fridge To Freeze To Death

A mother from South Carolina was sentenced Thursday to just five years in prison for killing her 4-day-old son Lewis by putting him in a refrigerator. Angela Renee Blackwell, 28,  pleaded guilty to infliction of great bodily harm for the hypothermia death of her child, People reports.

Blackwell’s sentence was reduced from a more serious one — homicide by child abuse — because of her IQ. According to WSOC-TV, she has an IQ of 58 and prosecutors didn’t believe that the crime, which happened in early 2016, was calculated.

“This child never had a chance,” South Carolina Sixth Circuit Deputy Solicitor Candice Lively told People.

On Feb. 27, 2016, Blackwell put her son in the fridge for approximately three hours. According to an arrest warrant, she brought her infant to a hospital where he was declared dead. A coroner pointed to hypothermia by asphyxiation for the death of Lewis.

Blackwell’s lawyer,

Couple Accused Of Microwaving 3-Month-Old Baby Boy

A couple from Park Hills, Missouri allegedly blamed a television commercial for inspiring them to microwave their 3-month-old son. The baby, who is alive but injured, was brought to a hospital’s emergency room by his parents for a facial rash in April. But doctors discovered something far more sinister than a rash: head injuries, a skull fracture and second-degree burns on the baby’s face.

At first, Derick Boyce-Slezak and Mikala Boyce-Slezak, both 22, blamed the wounds on some sort of cleaning agent, according to court documents. They initially said that they wiped their baby clean with a disinfectant-soaked towel. But on Monday, a social worker explained during a court hearing that Derick allegedly dropped their child in a feeble attempt to imitate a commercial. What commercial inspired their behavior was not revealed. Then, the father allegedly put his son in a microwave and turned it on for a brief
