JACKSONVILLE, Ill. (AP) - A newborn baby found alive in a trash bin in central Illinois two months ago will remain in foster care.

The (Springfield) State Journal-Register reports (http://bit.ly/1wUPbOI) that Morgan County prosecutors and the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services agreed last week that the baby boy should remain with his current foster parents.

The boy’s 17-year-old mother has been charged with attempted murder in juvenile proceedings. The baby was found Aug. 30 in a trash bin behind a Jacksonville business.

The newspaper reports that the Department of Children and Family Services previously wanted to place the baby with a relative. Prosecutors wanted the baby to remain in foster care. State agency officials said they couldn’t discuss specifics of the case.

A hearing in the girl’s case is Nov. 13.
