Mother and Daughter Indicted on Disturbing Charges in Connection with Newborn’s Tragic Death

In a disturbing turn of events, court documents reveal that a 36-year-old mother, Basma, and her 19-year-old daughter, Hanan, have been indicted on multiple charges, including strangulation or suffocation, endangering children, tampering with evidence, abuse of a corpse, and obstructing justice in connection with the death of Basma’s newborn son.

The distressing incident unfolded when responding officers reportedly discovered Basma’s newborn baby in the trunk of a car, wrapped in a trash bag inside a bucket. The revelation came after a 911 caller expressed concern about their unconscious mother. First responders rushed the 36-year-old mom to the hospital, only to discover that she had recently given birth, told 10tv.

Upon returning to the home to search for the baby, officers eventually located the newborn inside a vehicle parked in the backyard. Despite attempts at CPR, the infant was pronounced dead after being transported to a children’s hospital. Shockingly, reports suggest that Basma placed her newborn son in a trash bag and instructed her daughter to dispose of it. The 19-year-old complied by placing the baby in a bucket in the trunk.

A neighbor, witnessing the unfolding tragedy, recounted a significant police response, with first responders working urgently to save the newborn. The neighbor remarked on the gravity of the situation, noting, “They were doing compressions; you could tell by the way they were handling the situation that it was a very small person.”

The incident remains under investigation, shedding light on the disturbing circumstances surrounding the newborn’s death and the charges brought against the mother and daughter.
