South Carolina News

ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) — Nearly 30 years after an infant girl’s stabbed body was found floating on a South Carolina river, authorities have announced the arrest of the child’s mother in connection with the death.

News outlets report 48-year-old Stacy Michelle Costner Rabon, of Rock Hill, South Carolina, faces a charge of homicide by child abuse in connection with the August 1992 death of the infant.

A swimmer on the Catawba River that year found the infant, which was wrapped in a bedsheet inside a plastic grocery bag.

Rabon was arrested Tuesday and held. It was unknown if she has an attorney.
