At the scene, officers found the deceased baby wrapped in a towel laying next to a mop bucket, officials said.
According to the affidavit, the baby’s mother, Jazzlyn Nukenya Cooper-Holmes, 23, told police she gave birth to the baby around 4:00 a.m. on March 12 while standing over a toilet “so that the baby would go into the toilet,” KPVI-TV reported.
To prepare for the birth, Cooper-Holmes pre-ordered bedsheets, feminine hygiene products and Tylenol, court records show.
Investigators said the baby went into the toilet head-first and Cooper-Holmes only looked at the baby once before wrapping the child in a towel and putting the baby inside a mop bucket.
She then allegedly went outside and placed the baby on the ground, KPVI-TV reported.
After delivering, Cooper-Holmes headed back inside and reportedly cleaned up the bathroom before going outside again to check to see if the baby was alive, KPVI-TV stated.
She returned to her bedroom, and after falling asleep, she never went back outside again to check on the newborn, officials said.
