LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) — Authorities in central Pennsylvania say a woman has been arrested following the discovery of a deceased seven-month-old fetus at a local high school.
Lancaster County Coroner Steve Diamantoni said the discovery was made Tuesday night at McCaskey East high school in the city.
The Lancaster Intelligencer Journal/Lancaster New Era says a 19-year-old student believed to be the mother is being charged with concealing the death of a child.
An autopsy was done Wednesday, but the coroner said the cause and manner of death are pending.
A School District of Lancaster spokeswoman did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
