A woman and a friend are accused of fabricating a story about the death of a baby in 2001.
The Republican-American reported that Rosemary Eaton and Jesse Brown were charged with falsely reporting an incident concerning serious injury or death and two misdemeanor counts of reporting false statements.
Police say the 29-year-old Eaton told a Waterbury social service case worker that she gave birth at an abandoned house 12 years ago. Eaton said Brown helped with the childbirth.
The case worker alerted police that Eaton said she buried the baby behind a ball field in Terryville.
Police, who found no remains, said Eaton eventually admitted she made up the story.
A phone number could not be found for Eaton and Brown was held on a $50,000 bond. It's not known if they are represented by lawyers.
