MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - A Myrtle Beach woman has been indicted on an attempted murder charge after her newborn baby was found abandoned in a trash bin.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach (http://bit.ly/1M6HI6e ) reports that documents released Tuesday show that 23-year-old Shelby Harper Taylor was indicted. Authorities say the baby was found in a trash bin hours after it was born April 9. Two brothers taking trash out found the baby after hearing her cries. They said the baby’s face was pressed against a garbage bag and covered in trash and the newborn’s umbilical cord was still attached.

Taylor was arrested April 11 and taken to a hospital for treatment.

The baby has been placed with the Department of Social Services.
