Breanna Gering, 23, of Franklin, was arrested today at her home, accused of giving birth in Racine's Perkins Restaurant and then abandoning the infant in a nearby dumpster.
Charges include First Degree Reckless Homicide and Concealing the Death of a Child. Racine Police say Gering gave birth in Perkins' bathroom about 9 a.m. on Aug. 16, then placed the infant in a bag in a garbage dumpster at the restaurant, 4915 Washington Ave.
That afternoon, Racine Police responded to the Emergency Room at Wheaton Franciscan-All Saints hospital in Racine, where Gering had come for medical treatment. She reportedly displayed signs of recent childbirth, but was evasive with medical staff, who called the police. It later was determined that Gering had, in fact, been pregnant, and the dead infant was discovered in the dumpster.
