More than two decades after they found a dead abandoned newborn, authorities of Texas have identified and charged the mother with manslaughter thanks to enhancements in DNA technology.

Shelby Stotts sits in a Johnson County Jail on a $100,000 bond after her arrest Monday. The Texas Attorney General’s Office announced the arrest in a press release.
