Woman Pleads Guilty to Suffocating Baby
(2008-08-05)
(wgvu) - ERIE, Pa. (AP) - A former Mercyhurst College volleyball player
from Michigan has pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter for
suffocating her newborn baby in a campus apartment.
Nineteen-year-old Teri Rhodes, of Oakland County's Commerce
Township, faces a maximum of 10 to 20 years in prison when she is
sentenced later this year. She pleaded guilty Tuesday morning.
Rhodes was a sophomore at the Pennsylvania school when she gave
birth Aug. 12, 2007. Police say she hid and denied her pregnancy
during a team physical two days before giving birth.
They say she put the infant in a plastic bag and left her on the
floor of a bathtub while she showered. Then Rhodes left her
apartment.
