Prosecutors will seek the death penalty against a woman charged with the murder of a newborn girl whose frozen body was found in a plastic bag on a dead-end road in northern Illinois.

The Rockford Register-Star says the Winnebago County state's attorney made the announcement Tuesday in the case of 29-year-old Katie Stockton, who has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The infant, whom area residents named Baby Crystal, was discovered near the home of Stockton's parents in December 2004.

Stockton has not been charged in the deaths of two other infants whose skeletons were found in the trunk of an impounded vehicle that was registered to her.
