Suburban NY woman pleads not guilty to murder indictment in death of newborn found in trash

A suburban New York housekeeper has pleaded not guilty to an indictment charging her with murder in the death of her newborn.

Santos Elena Ruiz Solano was ordered held without bail on Wednesday. She was indicted on both intentional murder and depraved indifference murder counts by a Suffolk County grand jury.

Solano was arrested last month after prosecutors say she gave birth in her employer's West Islip (EYE'-slihp) bathroom. They say she killed the newborn, put her in a bag and asked her unknowing husband to throw the bag away.

An autopsy indicates the baby was born alive and suffered blunt impact injuries.

Her attorney did not return a telephone call Wednesday. He has previously said the child was stillborn.

Prosecutors say the defendant entered the country illegally from Honduras.
