ELKHART, Ind. (AP) — Authorities say a Manchester University college student has been arrested and faces charges in the death of her infant son.
Indiana State Police and North Manchester Police say 21-year-old Mikayla Munn was arrested Monday afternoon at her Elkhart home and taken to the Wabash County jail.
Authorities say Munn called 911 on March 28 and when first responders arrived they found she had given birth in her dorm room. Officials say she and the baby boy were in a bathtub and the baby wasn’t breathing. The infant was later pronounced dead.
Authorities say police investigated “due to inconsistent information.” Police say a warrant accuses her of murder and neglect of a dependent causing death.
Munn doesn’t have a listed phone number to contact for comment. It’s unclear if she has an attorney.
