Authorities are accusing an Oregon woman of killing a 21-year-old pregnant woman and trying to pass the baby off as her own. The Oregonian reports 27-year-old Korena Roberts is being held without bail. Police say Roberts called 911 claiming she had just given birth and the baby wasn't breathing. Roberts and the baby were taken the hospital. Despite doctors' attempts, they weren't able to revive the child.

At the hospital, doctors determined Roberts hadn't recently given birth.

Police searched the home and found the 21-year-old victim in the crawlspace. The victim's boyfriend and father of the baby had reported her missing. He says she was in her third trimester.
