PLANT CITY, Fla. (AP) — A Plant City woman is being held in jail on a first-degree murder charge after authorities found her infant son dead in her home.
Jail records show 30-year-old Talae Akei Thomas is also charged with aggravated child abuse. It’s not immediately known if she has an attorney.
Police say when officers found Thomas lying in a median on Thursday, she told them she needed to go to the hospital because she had lost her baby. Thomas was taken to the hospital and officers went to her home to notify her family.
A police report says that officers found the front door open and went inside, where they found the body of her 5-week-old son. Autopsy results have not yet been released by the medical examiner’s office.
