A 21 year-old Georgia mother has been accused of stabbing her new born baby moments after giving birth. Cassandra Elyse Norwood, reportedly gave birth to a newborn baby boy secretly in the home where she lived with her parents and other family in the Waverly Woods subdivision.
Police became involved after 911 was called when the baby was discovered dead by a family member in another part of the home.
According to Athens-Clarke police, no one was in that part of the house when she gave birth and no others have been charged thus far.
Norwood was charged Friday morning with murder and aggravated assault following release from the Athens Regional Medical Center in Athens, GA on Thursday where she was treated for blood loss and placed under watch.
It is unclear if she was suffering from emotional stress, postpartum psychosis or another type of illness.
A dawning question is where or who was the father.
