    MD - Melissa Bowen charged in deaths of 2 newborns, Prince Frederick, 8 March 2012

    http://www.wusa9.com/news/article/19...k-Of-Car-In-Md

    PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. (WUSA) -- The parents of a 32-year-old mother were the ones who discovered the remains of a newborn in the trunk of their daughter's car, Calvert County authorities revealed late Friday.

    Calvert County Sheriff Mike Evans described the remains as those of a "fetus or newborn," in a press conference Friday afternoon.

    Authorities were called at 6:39 p.m. Thursday to a mobile home the 5400 block of Hallowing Point Road in Prince Frederick.

    The parents of the woman who lives in the trailer were "cleaning out her car," when they made the horrible discovery, Evans said.

    The mom in the case is also the mother of three other children. The children are in the court-ordered custody of grandparents while the investigation continues, authorities said.

    What is wrong with these people? I hear a new story everyday now of someone killing their newborn baby or sexually abusing it.

    This is on Nancy...

    The Mom had left the home (possibly for psych eval and treatment according to reporter but the Sheriff won't say.)
    The car had been sitting there for 30 days or more, which is why the parents were cleaning out the car.
    The parents did not know she was pregnant.
    They found the baby wrapped in plastic.

    It doesn't sound like they have a clue what happened yet.
    Autopsy won't be complete until mid April.

    From November 2014:

    According to court files, Bowen accepted an Alford plea, which concedes the state has enough evidence to find a guilty verdict, but the defendant does not admit guilt to the charges...

    Judge Clagett sentenced Bowen to 10 years with three years suspended for count one of manslaughter and 10 years with seven years suspended for count two of manslaughter; Bowen is eligible for parole.

    According to court files, upon release, Bowen is on five years of supervised probation.
