BROWNSVILLE — A San Juan woman and her boyfriend were arraigned Monday on charges stemming from the discovery of an aborted fetus in a blanket-wrapped gift box under a Christmas tree.

Police found the corpse Thursday morning inside the woman's trailer home after receiving an anonymous tip, San Juan Police Chief Juan Gonzalez said.

Ruby Lee Medina, 31, and Javier Gonzalez, 37, of Mission face charges of abuse of a corpse, a Class A misdemeanor punishable by up to two years in jail; and evidence tampering, a felony carrying a possible sentence of two to 10 years in prison.
