A 16-year-old Shorewood girl faced a criminal charge in Milwaukee County Children's Court after being accused of burying her dead newborn in a shallow grave in a flower bed on the side of the family's home.
Shorewood police said the girl gave birth to a full-term baby boy in her bathtub, stashed the infant's body in her nightstand in her bedroom for at least a week, and eventually put the body into plastic bags and placed it in a hole in the flower bed.
The teen saw one charge of concealing a corpse dismissed.
