A 23-year-old mother in South Carolina has been charged with murdering her newborn baby girl, stuffing her body in a plastic bag, then burying her in the woods.

Joanie Faith Holcombe allegedly suffocated the tiny girl while the umbilical chord and placenta were still attached, before disposing of the body on December 13th.

Police found the remains after receiving a call about a baby with injuries to the face.

Investigators then tracked Ms. Holcombe down and she confessed to the unfathomable crimes.

She’s currently being held at the Anderson County Detention Center.
