Judge sets bond for woman accused of killing, disposing of two newborns

Alyssa Dayvault court appearance

CONWAY, SC (WMBF) - The North Myrtle Beach woman accused of giving birth to two children and throwing them in the trash was granted bond Tuesday morning.

A judge set a $35,000 surety bond for 30-year-old Alyssa Dayvault on charges of homicide by child abuse and destruction, desecration or removal of human remains.

Dayvault also was ordered not to leave Horry County without written permission from the court. In addition, she must also remain in her residence from 7 p.m. until 6 a.m. daily and not have contact with any minor children, including her own, without written permission from the court.

Dayvault has been in jail since Dec. 11, 2018. According to records from the Horry County Public Index, Dayvault filed a motion March 26 requesting that bond be set in her case.

Police said Dayvault admitted to giving birth to a baby boy at her home on South Oak Street in North Myrtle Beach around Dec. 2, 2018.

Dayvault reportedly said the child was born alive and took multiple gasping breaths after having been born.

According to police, the suspect said she failed to seek medical treatment and did not personally take action to attempt to save the infant’s life.

Arrest warrants state Dayvault then put the child’s body in a waste receptacle at her North Myrtle Beach home without notifying authorities.

The woman also reportedly told police she’d given birth to another child, this time a baby girl, in November 2017 in an apartment on David Street in North Myrtle Beach. The situation allegedly had the same outcome.
