Mom seeking new start left baby in woods

WILMERDING, Pa. (AP) - Police say a western Pennsylvania mother seeking a "fresh start" abandoned her 8-month-old daughter in the woods with a bottle of milk.

Police say 24-year-old Jennifer Cutruzzula, of Wilmerding, walked into the woods Wednesday night and dropped off the baby. A neighbor who saw Curuzzula leave the woods without the child found the baby crawling on her stomach along a muddy hillside and alerted authorities.

Temperatures were in the mid-30s with light rain falling.

Police say Cutruzzula told them she was having difficulty at home and wanted "a fresh start."

KDKA-TV reports that the baby was taken to a hospital and is doing fine.

Cutruzzula is charged with endangering the welfare of children and recklessly endangering. She's being held on $50,000 bond.

Court papers didn't list an attorney.
