TULLYTOWN, Pa. -

Police have charged a Bucks County woman with abuse of a corpse following a stillborn delivery.

Police say Lori Bendorovich of Tullytown gave birth last Monday.

But she didn't tell anyone.

Investigators say she put the baby in a trash bag and kept it there for several days.

A family friend discovered the child's body on Thursday.

Police are taking issue with the woman's claim that she didn't know she was pregnant until she gave birth.
