A 16-year-old from Nebraska has been arrested and was charged as an adult in the death of her premature baby. The girl gave birth to the baby and threw the infant out of a second-floor window leading to the death of the newborn.

The teenager, identified as Antonia Lopez, reportedly delivered the baby on Friday, Sept. 30. She is now booked into a juvenile detention facility and is facing charges including one count of felony child abuse resulting in death, US Weekly shared.

The high school student went into labor before dawn and gave birth in her bedroom. She even took to Facebook to ask someone to drive her somewhere but did not provide details as to why she needs such favor being done.

The teen's mother was made aware of what happened so she called 911. The teen's mother was administering CPR to the baby outside of their home when paramedics arrived. However, the life-saving efforts of the mother did not save the baby. The infant was pronounced dead after the baby was brought to Creighton University Medical Center, the New York Daily News reported.

The grandfather of Lopez said that he saw his granddaughter days before the incident and had no idea she was pregnant because she was so thin and looked underweight.

Accordingly, Lopez's latest run-in with the law is not her first as she and another female friend were accused of shoplifting cellphone cases in the past at a Walmart store in Omaha. She was sentenced to at least six months of probation plus charges linked to theft. She was also reported missing nine times from August to November of 2015.

No other details are available as to when she will be arraigned. It is unclear if Lopez has a boyfriend or even who the father of the baby is.
