CHICAGO (AP) — The teenage parents of a newborn left atop a trash can in Chicago are facing attempted murder charges and a grandmother of the child is accused of lying to police about finding the baby. Chicago police say the 16-year-old mother and 17-year-old father are expected to appear Friday in juvenile court. Police say the girl gave birth, wrapped the boy in a towel and placed him atop a garbage can Tuesday. They say the boy called his 37-year-old mother, who took the child to a fire station.
