Richmond mother now charged with murder
RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – The Richmond mother accused of putting her newborn baby in the dumpster is now charged with murder, according to Richmond City Circuit documents. ShaVaughn Robinson, 27, had been charged with felony concealment of a body.
Police arrested Robinson last week after investigators said she put her newborn baby’s body in a dumpster just off Monument Avenue. The baby’s body was found by a cleaning crew.
Detectives said Robinson gave birth inside the Lee Medical Center, where she worked, before she discarded the newborn in a dumpster behind the building.
