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

Kimberly Pappas is scheduled to be in a Detroit courtroom Monday to learn her punishment.

Pappas, of Wyandotte, earlier pleaded guilty to second-degree murder under a sentencing agreement that calls for 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 business in Wayne County’s Redford Township. The cause of death was suffocation.
