HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) - A Butler County grand jury has indicted a Hamilton mother for the death of her 5-week-old son.

Asuncion Avila-Villa, 26, was arrested Tuesday for the murder of Israel Santos. Investigators say Villa put the baby in a garbage can after he died from multiple skull fractures.

Villa was indicted on aggravated murder, gross abuse of a corpse, tampering with evidence and unlawful sexual conduct with a minor.

According to the indictment, Villa killed the baby to cover up the fact that his father was under 16 years old.

Prosecutors say they will seek the death penalty against Villa.
