A troubled Nebraska teen mother was charged as an adult Saturday for throwing her prematurely born baby out of a window, killing it.

16-year-old Antonia Lopez was taken into custody after telling her mother that she’d thrown the infant out of a second-story window in the family’s apartment early Friday morning after going into labor and giving birth

An emergency crew responded after her mother called 911.

It turned out that Ms. Lopez had posted to Facebook a plea for a ride, along with three crying emojis.


Lopez was charged with child abuse resulting in death, a felony, and booked into the Douglas County Youth Center.
