Prosecutors in Illinois say they will seek the death penalty for a woman charged with the murder of a newborn whose frozen body was found in a plastic bag and dropped off on a dead-end road. Twenty-nine year old Katie Stockton of Rockford pleaded not guilty to the charge. Residents named the infant "Baby Crystal" when the body was discovered near the home of Stockton's parents in 2004. She is not charged in the deaths of two other infants whose skeletons were found in the trunk of a car registered to Stockton.
