GORDON, Neb. (KHGI) — A 16-year-old girl in Nebraska is being held without bond after something horrific. She's charged with stabbing and killing her newborn baby.
KHGI looked at Sheridan County court records and report she's charged with first-degree murder and the use of a deadly weapon to commit a felony.
According to the arrest report, authorities responded to a home in Gordon at about 6 p.m. Monday. They'd gotten a report of a teen who had given birth, and the baby wasn't breathing.
The affidavit states the father met the officer at the door and told the officer it was too late, and then where the newborn was located.
Then, upon entering the house, the officer found the teen's mother yelling "she hurt him," referring to the teen, and then told the officer, "you can see the marks."
The affidavit says the officer looked at the newborn and realized its throat had been cut, and there were multiple stab wounds.
In a statement from the teenager's mother, she reported finding blood smeared on the walls and floors of the girl's bedroom while the teen was out at a store.
Then, the affidavit says, when the teen returned, they had an argument and the teen admitted to her mother that "it was dead, that she killed it."
Also according to the affidavit, the father reportedly found the baby in an empty plastic dog food bag and a trash bag in the teen's closet, covered with clothes.
The father then tried to save the newborn by starting CPR and calling 911.
Later Monday, the teen was taken to the hospital for surgery. Then, Tuesday, she was served an arrest warrant.
Court records say she is being held without bond and she's due back in court on Thursday.
KHGI is not naming the teen mother at this time since she's a minor.
