Teenage girl charged with murdering infant in Colorado

An 18-year-old girl from Weld County, Colorado is charged with two counts of first degree murder for the death of the infant she secretly gave birth to, according to an affidavit from the DA’s office.

Leiyla Marrissa Cepeda didn’t inform her family, also stating she didn’t know she was pregnant, but a nurse later told police Cepeda had said she’d stopped taking her thyroid medication upon learning she was so, according to the affidavit.
