Certified to be tried as an adult

Babies having babies. This is a tragedy for all concerned.

There are no winners here only losers.

May the poor baby rest in peace.

16-year-old mother to be prosecuted as adult
By Craig Kapitan - Express-News

The teen mother of a malnourished infant found dead in front of a fire station last year will be tried as an adult, a state district judge ruled Friday.

Investigators said Julie Navejar, 16, admitted she didn't seek help for her 7-week-old daughter, Jayda De La Rosa, after the baby stopped breathing about 1 a.m. Sept. 23. Navejar has been charged with injury to a child by omission.

Authorities said Navejar and her boyfriend, Ramiro De La Rosa, spent several hours after the baby died crafting a misleading note before leaving the infant swaddled in a car seat outside a West Side station.
