Woman charged over baby found by rubbish chute
A woman has been charged with the attempted murder of a baby girl who was found critically injured at the foot of a tower block rubbish chute.
West Midlands Police said the woman, aged 24, would appear at Wolverhampton Magistrates' Court tomorrow accused of trying to kill the infant, who was found with serious injuries in the city last Saturday.
Meanwhile, a 32-year-old man arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender has been freed on police bail pending further inquiries.
A spokesman for West Midlands Police said the baby remained in a critical condition at Birmingham Children's Hospital.
Officers from the force were called to a flat in Boscobel Crescent, Wolverhampton, at about 6.30pm on Saturday to a report of a missing child.
The injured baby was subsequently found during a search of a ground-floor refuse collection area.
