Graphic Testimony In Baby's Murder Trial


LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A former roommate of a woman charged with
murdering her newborn daughter has testified she found the baby
inside a garbage bag wrapped in a bloody towel.
Kelsey O'Leary gave her graphic testimony Tuesday in the trial
of 20-year-old Katie McCoy, of Plainfield, Ind., a former
Bellarmine University student who is charged with murdering her
newborn girl by letting her drown in a dorm toilet in October 2007.
Fox 41 WDRB reports O'Leary told jurors that she saw the back of
the baby's head in the trash, then ran out of the trash room and
called 911.
The graphic 911 tapes were played for the jury.
The defense admits that McCoy was pregnant and gave birth, but
says the baby was stillborn.
