Police say Portellos gave birth to her child and then hid it in the trash.

Portellos went to a hospital emergency room in 2008, and despite definite signs, denied she had given birth. She then later admitted she had a baby daughter, wrapped in towels and a plastic bag, and left it in her bedroom.

Portellos faces a prison term of ten to twenty years.
