Racine, Wisconsin (The Weekly Vice)- Breanna Gering, a 23-year-old Franklin woman was charged Tuesday after she allegedly gave birth at the restaurant she worked at, placed the child in a trash bag and then threw the baby into a metal garbage bin.

According to Racine police, officers were called to Wheaton Franciscan-All Saints hospital on a report that Gering was being treated for heavy bleeding and abdominal cramps. Doctors believed that she had recently given birth, but she denied it.

Detectives questioned Gering, who eventually admitted to giving birth in the bathroom of a Perkins Restaurant where she was a manager, before disposing of the newborn's body.

A coworker told authorities that Gering allegedly complained of cramps and bleeding and went into the bathroom - asking the employee to bring her three trash bags and ten towels.

After having the baby, Gering allegedly stuffed the baby into a trash bag along with her clothing and bloody towels. When she emerged from the bathroom, she reportedly carried the trash can to a metal garbage bin behind the Westgate Mall where she disposed of the body.

Police searched the bin and found a fully developed deceased infant girl, weighing six pounds twelve ounces and twenty inches long. An autopsy showed the child was born alive.

Gering was booked into the Racine County jail and charged with first-degree reckless homicide and concealing the death of a child. Her bond was set at $100,000, with the condition that she be monitored by a GPS device. If convicted, she faces a 63-year prison sentence.

Gering also has a three-year-old daughter, who is staying with her boyfriend. Child Protective Services have investigated the home and determined that there is no reason to remove the toddler.
