EWA, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A 13-year-old girl has been released pending investigation after the death of her infant child.
The teen was arrested for second-degree murder after her 1-day-old baby was found dead in a trash can, police sources said.
The infant died in February, but the medical examiner's office recently classified the death as a homicide.
The girl was arrested Thursday after turning herself in at the Kapolei police station.
She allegedly put her baby in the dumpster in an attempt to keep her pregnancy a secret.
