Teenage Mother Required To Produce Baby Or Body

Last updated on Friday, May 21, 2010

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The clock is ticking for a teenage mother to produce either a baby or a body.

19-year-old Tasha Miller says she gave birth at home a week-and-a-half ago.

But police say she's offered five different explanations of what she did with the baby, including conflicting stories on whether it was born alive or dead.

Miller has twice taken the fifth in court when asked where the newborn is.

Marion County Juvenile Judge Marilyn Moores has threatened miller with contempt if she doesn't produce the baby by noon today, or offer a convincing explanation of why she can't.

Police were alerted after Miller was treated at a hospital for an infection she says she contracted while delivering the baby.

Police say she's claimed at various times to have left it in a garbage bin, at a fire station, or at the roadside, or to have chucked it out the window of her car.
