PHOENIX — Authorities have arrested a woman in connection with the discovery of a baby found inside an Amazon warehouse last week.

Police say 22-year-old Samantha Vivier has been charged with unlawful disposal of human remains after police were called to the facility near 53rd Avenue and Lower Buckeye Road on January 16.

The newborn was beyond resuscitation when first responders arrived, and police later said the baby, a girl, appeared to be close to full term.

Further details were not immediately available.
