WKYT says Amber Bowling has pleaded guilty to the murder of her newborn baby boy in 2018 during a court appearance Monday.

Kentucky State Police told WLEX that when Bowling was 21 years old, she gave birth to a baby boy in December 2018. Court records obtained by WLEX say she allegedly placed the baby in a trash bag and threw it off a second-story banister of an apartment complex. The baby’s remains were found by a neighbor.

WLEX says an autopsy report showed that the baby died from blunt-force trauma and had a cranial fracture, fractured ribs and a brain bleed.

Bowling will be sentenced on June 27. WKYT says her recommended sentence is 40 years.
