Police say Mingo woman took her newborn twins to hospital
WELCH -- West Virginia State Police say no charges are planned against a Mingo County woman who dropped off her newborn twins at a hospital.
The woman initially told police that another woman left the twin boys in a basket on her porch. She claimed there also was a note asking that the infants be taken to Welch Community Hospital.
Sgt. J.S. McCarty said Thursday that the woman was actually the infants' mother.
He says the woman told police that she didn't think she could care for the infants. So, she took them to the hospital in Welch.
He says police believe there was no criminal intent.
The infants are now in the custody of Child Protective Services.
