A 26-year-old lady has been arrested following the death of her newborn baby girl. The Police found the newborn baby’s body in the kitchen waste bin and a post-mortem examination later revealed that she died from multiple stab wounds.
The mother, Rachel Tunstill, has been arrested and is being charged with her daughter’s murder.
Rachel a graduate of University of Lancashire, seemed depressed and wept uncontrollably in court.
Police said she did not enter a plea and was remanded in custody.
A 30-year-old man who is thought to be the baby’s father was released without charge after the Police said they were “completely satisfied” he had no involvement in the newborn baby’s death.
