HENDERSONVILLE, NC (WYFF) A teenager who admitted leaving her dead baby in a Hendersonville grocery store bathroom is now facing charges.

An employee found the newborn's body in the bathroom of the BI-LO at Henderson Crossing on Four Seasons Boulevard last August.

After the infant's body was found, Hendersonville police released surveillance video that showed the teen and her boyfriend walking into the store. The video showed teen walking into the restroom holding a large purse that appeared to be full. Minutes later, the camera captured images of her leaving the restroom in different clothing.

Deputies said that the day after the media aired the surveillance video, 16-year-old Aketzali Sanchez-Anaya came forward and admitted that she had left her dead baby in the restroom garbage can.

On Tuesday, the Hendersonville County sheriff's deputies arrested Sanchez-Anaya and charged her with concealing the birth of a child and failure to report a death.
