23-year-old Brittany Robinson faces charges after the child's body was found under the porch of her father's Lawrence County home Sunday.

State Police Lt. Eric Hermick says the homeowner discovered the baby inside a bag when he was decorating the outside of his home for Christmas.

Robinson told police she had severe stomach pains while she was at work Friday and later gave birth at home.

She also claims the baby was not breathing.

The charges against Robinson include criminal homicide and tampering with evidence.

Police say she was at a local hospital on Sunday.
