MOUNT CARMEL — A Mount Carmel woman whose newborn baby was found deceased in a garbage can earlier this year was charged Thursday with abuse of a corpse, a Class A misdemeanor.

On Monday, a Hawkins County grand jury returned a “no true bill” on a homicide presentment against Kathyrn Condrey, 36, 184 Valley Crest Road, Mount Carmel.

The grand jury opted not to press charges due to the fact that an autopsy couldn’t determine a cause of death or if the infant had been born alive.
