A woman has been charged in connection to a baby being found in the Lloydminster landfill in the fall.

RCMP say the 26-year-old woman has been charged with disposing of evidence related to the death of a child during childbirth.

Late last November, police were called to a Lloydminster home, after a woman had difficulty during childbirth. When the child couldn't be accounted for, police spent five days searching the landfill, eventually finding the remains of a baby.

The woman is not identified in the RCMP news release.
