A Chicago 18-year-old is behind bars facing first-degree murder charges after she allegedly left her newborn wrapped in a bag and left him outside to die. 
According to the Chicago Tribune, Ana Rosa Mora gave birth, placed the child in a Walmart bag, left him outside her home and then went to bed. 


Why?


Prosecutors say she did it because she was afraid her current boyfriend would leave her because the child looked like her ex-boyfriend, who was indeed the father.

Police were alerted by officials at her high school after she showed staffers a fake downloaded picture of a baby girl, claiming it was her child. As the lie continued, Mora's story constantly changed and that's when school staff became suspicious, calling police. 


The medical examiner reported the child was born alive and died from asphyxia and possibly exposure.
