A mother accused of giving birth to her newborn baby and then putting it in a bag and shoving it in a closet is back in Grand Junction.

Morgan Hite, 22, is charged with first degree murder.

Hite was extradited from Alaska, and is now being held in Mesa County Jail.

Grand Junction Police believe Hite secretly delivered a baby boy in a neighbor's bathtub and then put him in a plastic tote in a closet at her family's home.

According to an arrest affidavit, Hite’s father and stepmother discovered the baby’s body, in April, after it had been in the closet for more than two months.

    if you think you are above this type of insanity think again. this is what happens when a person chooses to live life their way instead of submitting their life to Christ. i know her and i hope her "friends" know that this is the same type of person they are inside. we are all born sinful. we hate each other and are merderous in our hearts. there is only one way to live a good life and it is not by trying you best to be good. its called surrender to god. christ died for our lives of sin and paid the punishment for sin for all. we have an obligation to change our minds about our sin, and to put our faith/trust in jesus' sacrificial death that has paid for our sins concequences. so its not hard to believe this occured. this is who we are as people without christ, selfish, hate filled merderers. so who will you be? not anyone good without jesus, hes the only way to change and love.

    I have known Morgan for since the eigth grade, we were in the same social group and shared alot of the same friends. There are alot of sick people in this world and it is sad to think that she became one. I am sorry that something has torn you down so badly that it resaulted in you putting a precious innocent baby to death, nut you deserve everything that is coming to you. Granted this is a sick world, but we are suppose to help our children through this world, not make them victims of it.

    I have known this girl for years, and she has always been secretive and troubled. I am saddened but not suprised of her actions.

    my daughter has known this girl since elementary school. They went on field trips and played sports together. I can't believe she did such a horrific thing.
