New Information Released In Baby Death Case

More details are coming to light about the case of a Kentucky college student, charged with murdering her newborn.

Louisville police say Katie McCoy killed her baby girl in October of 2007 when she put the newborn in a garbage bag in her dorm room at Bellarmine University.

Prosecutors now say one officer overheard McCoy telling her mother she thought the baby was stillborn.

Another officer says at the scene McCoy asked, "what's going to happen to me? I'm here on a golf scholarship, so what's going to happen to me? Am I going to get kicked out of school?"

McCoy's trial is set to start Monday.
