Parents of newborn arrested in child's death

MARSHFIELD, Wis. (AP) — Sheriff's officials in central Wisconsin say they've arrested the parents of a newborn baby found in a garbage bag in a vehicle parked at a Marshfield hospital.

Authorities say the mother had given birth to the child Saturday at a home in Milladore. Deputies say the child had injuries but was not taken to a medical facility.

The Marshfield Medical Center reported a possible missing newborn Saturday. It wasn't immediately clear how the hospital knew about the missing infant. Officers located a vehicle belonging to the baby's father in the hospital parking lot later Saturday and found the baby boy wrapped in towel inside a tied plastic garbage bag in the cargo area. The child was rushed into the hospital where he was revived, but later died of his injuries.
