New Mexico mom accused of throwing baby in dumpster placed on strict house arrest

Alexis Avila, the 18-year-old New Mexico woman accused of throwing her newborn son into a dumpster and driving off last week, has been placed on house arrest and ordered to wear a GPS monitor as she awaits her day in court, court records show.
She faces charges of attempted murder and child abuse in connection with the incident, according to city police.
She allegedly wrapped the baby in a blood-soaked towel and two garbage bags, then abandoned him in 36-degree weather with his umbilical cord still attached.
Hobbs police said she told them she didn’t know she was pregnant and "panicked."
