MILAN, Mo. -- A woman who gave birth in the bathroom of a Missouri meatpacking plant has been charged in her newborn son’s drowning death.
Makuya Kambamba was charged Friday with first-degree murder and several other counts in the baby’s death.
The 28-year-old Kirksville woman is jailed without bond.
No attorney is listed for her in online court records.
KTVO-TV reports that investigators said in court documents that Kambamba knowingly allowed her son to drown in a toilet after giving birth at the restroom at a Smithfield Foods plant where she works.
