Woman accused of throwing baby in dumpster pleads guilty


LIVINGSTON, N.Y. (NEWS10) – A woman facing manslaughter charges after police say she left her newborn baby in a dumpster last Thanksgiving pleaded guilty on Friday.

Police say they found Tara Tomlin’s baby dead in a plastic bag in a dumpster outside a Xtra Mart on Route 9 in Livingston.

She was originally charged with 2nd degree murder, but State Police dropped the charge to manslaughter last month.

Tomlin was an employee at the Xtra Mart store.

She is scheduled to be sentenced on December 7.
