Texas girl, 17, stabs newborn to death minutes after giving birth, police say
A Monmouth County high school student had a court appearance Wednesday morning to face charges that she killed her newborn son. Prosecutors say Neptune High School student Jada McClain, 18, hid her pregnancy and then killed the baby shortly after giving birth in March. Investigators say the baby's father, year-old Quaimere Mohammed, then threw the infant's body in a dumpster in Asbury Park. McClain is charged with murder and disturbing or desecrating remains.
After the alleged murder, security video captured Mohammed throwing a blue trash bag into an garbage bin at an apartment complex in nearby Asbury Park. Police say the newborn was inside the bag, wrapped in a blanket. The unidentified female friend later contacted Asbury Park police and told them about her conversation with McClain, who later confessed after she was arrested on Thursday. After the baby was born, McClain picked Mohammed up in her car. The dead child was in the back seat while the couple spent approximately an hour together near the Atlantic Ocean before disposing of the body.
