NEW BEDFORD, Mass. (WHDH) -
A New Bedford woman appeared in court Monday accused of discarding her stillborn child beneath her porch and lying to investigators.
Police in New Bedford say Tamlyn Gonzalez initially told police she wasn’t pregnant, later she said she gave birth to a child in New Jersey and eventually admitted to having the stillborn baby alone in her bathtub at home.
The remains were found under the porch at Gonzalez’s mother’s home where the two live.
Gonzalez was released into the custody of a probation officer, ordered to take her medication as prescribed and told not to leave the state of Massachusetts.
