Va. Woman Sought to Abort Baby Found in Dryer


RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- A suburban Richmond woman accused of putting her newborn in a clothes dryer had unsuccessfully sought an abortion months earlier.

That detail emerged Monday during a bond hearing for 39-year-old Angela Janecka. According to media reports, Janecka and her husband had traveled to northern Virginia for the abortion but a doctor said her pregnancy was too far along for the procedure.

Janecka was denied bond at the hearing.

Janecka is charged with attempted murder and felony child neglect after she wrapped her newborn in a plastic bag and put the baby into a dryer. The infant survived and is under the care of Child Protective Services. The woman's older son is also under state care.
