CHICAGO (AP) - Police say a newborn girl found dead in front of a Chicago high-rise was thrown from an eighth-floor window of the building by her mother.

The 19-year-old woman, Mubashra Uddin, was charged with first-degree murder.

The Chicago Police Department released a written statement Saturday accusing the woman of dropping the girl shortly after giving birth.

The girl was discovered Wednesday night in the yard of the building in the Uptown neighborhood on the city’s North Side. An autopsy found she died of blunt force injuries.

The police statement says the suspect was taken to a hospital. She was scheduled to appear in bond court Saturday, but it was not clear if she already had an attorney who could comment on the charge against her.
