Murder attempt charge for Md. woman
State prosecutors have charged a woman with attempted first-degree murder after Baltimore County police said she threw her newborn out of a second-story window.
Baltimore County State's Attorney Scott Shellenberger tells The Baltimore Sun that he has told police to charge 21-year-old Rebecca Himes.
Shellenberger says police know where Himes is and were on the way to take her into custody Monday night.
Police said on July 22 that Himes had given birth in the bathroom of her home and thrown the infant out of the window. Police said the baby apparently landed in the bushes and was found by Himes' younger sister.
The baby girl was unharmed and is in the care of the Department of Social Services.
