From the article:

A 17-year-old ‘straight A-student’ has been charged with murder after she allegedly smothered her newborn baby girl with a towel in her home bathroom because she didn’t want her mother to find out.

Jessica Lynn Brewster, of Muskegon, was arraigned on Wednesday morning and charged with open murder – a combination of first and second-degree murder under Michigan law.

A detective told the court on Wednesday that Brewster admitted she held a towel over the baby’s face after giving birth around 4am on October 15 so that her mother wouldn’t hear the cries.

Detective Kory Luker said in a sworn statement that the teen said she was fearful of her mother finding out she was pregnant,MLive reported.

The teen then put the baby in the plastic bag and carried it to her grandmother’s senior living complex where she allegedly buried the baby behind the building in a shallow grave.

The district judge denied bond.

The baby’s body was found on Monday afternoon by a janitor at the apartment block, who at first thought the child was a doll.

Brewster, who attends Muskegon High School was arrested on Monday night and ‘admitted’ her connection to the child’s death.

How can someone be capable of straight A’s and not be capable of the logical thought process required to obtain prenatal care, arrange an adoption for the child, or even just to tell her mother? Instead, it is ‘logical’ for this young woman to smother her infant, bury her n a shallow grave, and continue on with life as if nothing happened? You are messed up, kid. Hopefully there will be some sort of sterilization that happens along with imprisonment for you. Disgusting, just disgusting.
