Police charge woman with killing her newborn in NY

– A woman working as a live-in housekeeper on Long Island has been arrested and charged with killing her newborn, whose body later was found in a garbage can.

Suffolk County Police say Santos Elena Ruiz Solano gave birth to a baby girl early Sunday at the West Islip home where she was employed. They say the baby suffered traumatic injuries shortly after her birth and died.

Ruiz Solano is being held pending arraignment on a murder charge Friday. It wasn’t clear if she had a lawyer.
