Police say a Thai woman has confessed to killing her newborn baby then dumping her body in an airport trash bin before flying to a resort island with her boyfriend.
Pol. Lt. Col. Porapat Petpayabaan says 24-year-old Nuansiri Samranjai was in custody in Bangkok after confessing to killing her baby Sunday before flying to Samui Island with her new British boyfriend.
Porapat says Nuansiri gave birth just hours before her flight and strangled the infant. He says the father was an ex-boyfriend from Britain and she thought the baby would upset her new boyfriend. Police declined to identify the new boyfriend and said he was not a suspect.
An airport guard found the newborn's body in a parking lot trash bin, and Nuansiri was identified on a surveillance video.
