    TX - Nidia Alvarado charged in death of newborn, San Antonio, Dec 2013

    Dead infant found in duffel bag. (SA Express-News)
    SAN ANTONIO — The body of a dead infant was found in a blue duffel bag Monday afternoon by a recycling center employee sorting items on a conveyor belt.

    Officials did not say whether the infant was a boy or girl, but police Sgt. Daniel Gonzales said the infant was believed to be between 1 and 10 days old. If an autopsy shows that the child was killed prior to the body being discarded, the case could become a capital murder investigation, he said.

    Gonzales said the East Side recycling center's manifest showed that the baby likely came to the center with items collected between Saturday and noon Monday. The body could have come from San Antonio or an outside county, he said.

    The employee was sorting in the “single stream” area — which includes household materials such as plastic bottles, paper and glass — when the duffel bag came across on the belt, company spokeswoman Lisa Doughty said.

    Employees immediately shut down operations and called police, she said. Those working in that area were sent home.

    How does anyone "kill" or "discard" a baby? How, just how?!

    A baby found dead in a duffel bag at an East Side recycling plant in 2013 is finally resting under a headstone.

    Mourners gathered at Chapel Hill Memorial Park to pay their respects to Baby Noel who was buried more than two years ago. His death, however, was not the only tragic circumstance that brought them together.

    For two years, Baby Noel has lain in the cemetery with only a simple marker to show his final resting spot. The woman who took on his burial, Pamela Allen, gathered enough money to bury him but told the people gathered at the grave Wednesday that there hadn't had enough originally to pay for a headstone.

    Woman sentenced to life in prison in infant son's death - October 20, 2016

    http://www.ksat.com/news/woman-sente...ant-sons-death

    “This was a cruel and horrific crime that you committed,” 399th District Court Judge Ray Olivarri said. “You are going to have to answer to a higher authority than me at some point in your life.”

    Olivarri was addressing Nidia Alvarado, 28, who he had just sentenced to life in prison for the murder of her newborn son.
    Alvarado was initially charged with capital murder, but as part of a plea agreement, she pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of murder.

    “She had no criminal history, has mental problems and had difficult childhood,” said Simpson, as he explained why the charges were reduced to murder. “We factored all that in. It was a horrible crime, and life is a very serious sentence.”

    Alvarado must serve 30 years in prison before she is eligible for parole.
