Baby Found In Dumpster In Foster Care

(Jacksonville, IL) -- The baby found in a Jacksonville dumpster last summer will remain in foster care, until a hearing is set later this month. A temporary custody hearing was originally scheduled for last Thursday. The baby's mother, a 17-year-old from Jacksonville, faces attempted murder charges. The child was found in August and placed in a temporary guardianship of DCFS, and then in foster care. DCFS wants to place the child with his maternal grandmother, but the Morgan County State's Attorney is against that move.
