LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- A Bullitt County woman charged in the death of a newborn baby found in a Louisville department store trash can told police she had wanted to keep the little girl.

Jessica Price told police she believed she was still in the first trimester when she went into labor on Aug. 8 in the bathroom of a Kohl's department store where she worked.

The police interview was recently filed in court records.

Price has pleaded not guilty to murder, abuse of a corpse and tampering with evidence. She has told police the baby was not breathing when she was born.

Police have said the girl was born at full term, and an autopsy found air in the infant's lungs, which suggested it would have been breathing.
