Altheimer, AK (The Weekly Vice) - Brittany Cole, a 22-year-old Arkansas Woman, was jailed Sunday after she allegedly tossed her 9-month-old baby into a dumpster and then told relatives that she was tired of caring for the child.
According to police, officers were dispatched to an Altheimer residence after receiving a report that a baby's mother had thrown him into a dumpster.
When officers arrived on the scene, the child had already been retrieved out of the dumpster by the child's grandmother who called police.
Investigators say Cole became angry earlier that evening shortly after her son was returned to her home after spending time with his father.
In retaliation, Cole grabbed her son, left the residence and tossed him into a garbage dumpster. The baby's grandmother noticed that the child was missing and asked Cole about the baby's whereabouts.
That's when Cole reportedly pointed in the direction of the dumpster and stated that she was tired of caring for the baby. The child's grandmother retrieved the child from the dumpster and called 911.
Cole was booked into jail and charged with first-degree endangering the welfare of a minor. Prosecutors may upgrade the charge to attempted capitol murder.
The baby and his two siblings have been taken into protective custody.
