CONWAY, SC (WMBF) - The North Myrtle Beach woman accused of giving birth to two children and throwing them in the trash is scheduled to appear before a judge for a bond hearing Tuesday morning.

Alyssa Dayvault, 30, has been in jail since Dec. 11, 2018, on charges of homicide by child abuse and destruction, desecration or removal of human remains.

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.
