The body of a deceased infant boy was found by refuse sorters at the RE Community recycling center in Roseville, Mich., Wednesday, Jan. 14, 2015. night. Police say the mother of a baby found dead at the Detroit-area recycling center had three other children but lost custody of them. Roseville Chief James Berlin says the 24-year-old woman is expected to appear in court Wednesday, Jan. 28, 2015, in Eastpointe, Mich.

EASTPOINTE, Mich. — A judge says a woman whose newborn baby was found dead at a Detroit-area recycling center is expected to appear in court.

The woman's name hasn't been released. Eastpointe District Judge Carl Gerds says he expects to handle the mother's arraignment early Wednesday afternoon.

Police believe the boy was born around Dec. 22 and died two days later. Police say the body was left in a shed in Eastpointe and somehow ended up at a recycling center nearby in Roseville on Jan. 14.

Investigators initially believed the baby might be a missing child from the Lansing area, but tests ruled that out.
