Real Baby, Fake Kidnapping, Real Tragedy

Police have announced that a Bronx mother has been charged with killing her baby and dumping him in a garbage in Corona, Queens on New Year’s Eve. No, she’s not a prom queen; Lucilla Rojas is 28. She originally claimed that the 1-month-old was taken from her at gunpoint outside Jacobi Hospital in the Bronx, but detectives have disproved her story due to inconsistencies and Rojas has been charged with murder, tampering with evidence and endangering the welfare of a child.
