Baby bones found in car trunk

Authorities say skeletal remains of two infants found in the trunk of a car at a northern Illinois impound lot were wrapped in cloth and stuffed in separate plastic bags. Now they want to determine how the infants died and if they were related to 28-year-old Katie Stockton. The Rockton woman owns the car and already is charged with first-degree murder in the freezing death of a newborn left along a roadway in 2004.

Area residents named that infant Baby Crystal and organized her funeral.

Stockton was arrested Aug. 5 in Merriam, Kan., after authorities developed enough evidence to charge her in Baby Crystal's death.

They discovered the other bodies in a South Beloit impound lot while searching for clues in that case.
