CHICAGO – An 18-year-old Chicago woman was jailed on $500,000 bond after being accused of killing her newborn son.

The Chicago Sun-Times reported that Ana Rosa Mora was charged Friday in Cook County with first-degree murder in the April 19 death of her newborn. Authorities said the baby’s body was found wrapped in a plastic bag in a gangway between two buildings near Mora’s home.

Mora does not have a listed home telephone number. It was not immediately clear whether she had legal representation.

Her next court appearance is scheduled for Monday.
