An 18-year-old who cops say put her newborn baby in a trash compactor has been indicted by a Hoston County Grand Jury on one count of Capital Murder.  Court records say Jakayla Williams initially lied to police saying she gave her newborn to a hospital nurse, but after more questioning she admitted to putting the baby in the dumpster.  Prosecutors say they are considering seeking the death penalty.
