CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - An Ethete (EETH-ity) woman has been charged with killing her newborn baby after delivering it at home on the Wind River Indian Reservation.

A federal criminal complaint filed Tuesday charges 20-year-old Ardis Sierra Enos with first-degree murder in the boy’s March 26 death. She faces a detention hearing Friday in Lander.

James Barrett, an assistant federal public defender, said Wednesday that federal prosecutors have agreed to send Enos for mental evaluation.

An FBI agent’s complaint says that Enos had kept her pregnancy secret. Doctors at Lander Regional Hospital called the FBI after Enos sought medical treatment the day after giving birth.

The FBI agent states Enos told him in an interview that she killed the baby. Searchers later found the baby’s body in a ditch.
