DETROIT (AP) — A 26-year-old woman has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the death of her newborn son whom she stuffed into a plastic bag after giving birth to him at her suburban Detroit workplace.

The Wayne County prosecutor's office says Kimberly Pappas entered the plea Wednesday during a court conference. It comes with a sentencing agreement of 9 to 20 years in prison.

Police say the baby was discovered on March 31 at Pappas' desk, shortly after his birth in the restroom of a Redford Township business. The cause of death was suffocation.

Pappas, of Wyandotte, is scheduled to be sentenced Oct. 26 in Wayne County Circuit Court.
