LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A woman who police said left her newborn in a Louisville department store trash can has been charged with murder.

WAVE-TV reported the charge was placed against 29-year-old Jessica Price. She is also charged with abuse of a corpse and evidence tampering. The station reports she was an employee at the store.

The body of the apparently full-term infant was found in a rest room at a Kohl's department store on Aug. 8. Police say they believe the child was born healthy but died from an intentional act.

The child's cause of death hasn't been determined.

Online jail records did not indicate whether Price had an attorney.
