Michigan native charged with infanticide

A college student from Michigan who was going to school in Pennsylvania has been charged in the death of her infant daughter. Before giving birth to and allegedly killing her child, Teri Rhodes supposedly performed internet searches using the following criteria: "what can kill a fetus," "alternative methods of ending pregnancy," "herbal abortion techniques" and "pregnancy termination."

The child was found dead "in a white plastic bag inside the bathtub" of Rhodes' campus apartment.

This television story notes, "Rhodes hid her pregnancy from every one, from her volleyball coaches, friends, and even medical staff" and says, "investigators allege Rhodes delivered her baby girl in the shower. They say she then put her in a plastic bag, and then took a shower, while here baby laid in the bag, at the bottom of the tub."
