Mother of abandoned infant charged

Sep 27, 2011 6:06:00 PM - thestate.com
A 21-year-old college student was charged Tuesday with “unlawful conduct towards a child” after Richland County authorities on Monday found a newborn baby abandoned outside a laundry room at the Enclave Apartments.

Orenthia McCuller admitted giving birth to and abandoning the baby boy, Sheriff Leon Lott said in a statement. She was being held at the Alvin S. Glenn detention center Tuesday evening.

Authorities were called to the apartment complex at 1800 Longcreek Drive in St. Andrews by a concerned citizen.

The baby, which was wrapped in a blanket, was taken to Richland Palmetto Hospital and is in good condition, Lott said.

A release from the Richland County Sheriff’s Department said that McCuller was a college student but did not name the college where she was enrolled.
