St. Charles, MO-Three relatives of an 11-year-old girl who gave birth in the bathtub of her suburban St. Louis home are facing criminal charges.
An adult female and adult male are charged with child endangerment. A 17-year-old male is charged with incest as well as statutory rape and statutory sodomy of a child younger than 12.
On February 11, police say an adult male brought the infant to a hospital with the umbilical cord and placenta still attached.
The man initially said that someone dropped off the infant on his front porch. He later told police that he was a relative, but he did not know he was pregnant or that she was being sexually assaulted until she gave birth.
During the investigation, the teen told police he had sex with the girl about 100 times but did not know she was pregnant.
The woman who was charged, is being accused of failing to provide the girl medical care when she gave birth.
The identity of all persons involved are not being realized in order to protect the victim’s identity.
