ST. CHARLES, Mo. (St. Louis Post-Dispatch) — Three relatives of an 11-year-old girl who gave birth in the bathtub of her suburban St. Louis home are facing criminal charges.
A woman and a man are charged with child endangerment, and a 17-year-old boy is charged with incest as well as statutory rape and statutory sodomy of a child younger than 12.
All three suspects live in St. Charles.
Police started investigating after the adult male relative brought an infant to a hospital on Feb. 11.
Charging documents say the baby still had the umbilical cord and placenta attached and had a body temperature of just 90 degrees.
