Buffalo Woman Charged With Murder of Newborn Daughter Found in Shoebox

A 19-year-old woman has been charged with second-degree murder in the death of her newborn daughter whose body was found in a garbage bin in Buffalo.

Police say 19-year-old Alicia Zebrun of Lackawanna was apprehended by Buffalo detectives Monday night and taken to Erie County Medical Center for evaluation.

She was scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday morning in Buffalo City Court. It was not immediately known if she had an attorney.

Authorities say Zebrun put the infant in a shoebox and then placed the box in a garbage container behind the Botanical Gardens in South Buffalo. The baby's body was discovered Friday afternoon by a person looking for returnable cans.
