Richmond, VA (The Weekly Vice) - Shavaughn Robinson, a 27-year-old Virginia woman, has been jailed after she allegedly gave birth to a baby daughter while at work, bagged the newborn up and then threw her into a dumpster.
According to police, Robinson gave birth to a full-term baby girl in the restroom of the Lee Medical Building where she works as a massage therapist.
After giving birth to the child, Robinson then allegedly tossed the infant into a trash bag, covered her with toilet tissue, then tied the bag closed. The infant was then tossed into a dumpster behind the building where she reportedly died of asphyxiation.
Investigators say a female janitor entered the restroom a short time later and saw Robinson on her hands and knees cleaning up blood in front of a toilet. Robinson reportedly told the janitor that she had been having stomach problems.
Another janitor reported hearing baby cries coming from inside the restroom before Robinson was seen exiting the restroom with a trash bag that appeared full. The same janitor discovered the deceased child in the dumpster later that evening.
Robinson was booked into jail and charged with felony concealment of a dead body. Additional charges will be forthcoming, according to prosecutors.
At Robinson's arraignment on Monday, prosecutors asked that she be held without bond, claiming that she would be a flight risk. The judge disagreed, however, and set Robinson's bond at $10,000.
