Accused baby thief to face court Monday

The woman accused of stealing a day-old baby from Victoria Jubilee Hospital last month is expected to appear in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court on Monday.

Twenty-seven-year-old Peta-Gay Ffrench of a Harkers Hall, St Catherine address was charged with child stealing on Monday.

French was taken into custody last Tuesday when she attempted to register the baby at Registrar General’s Department (RGD) in Twickenham Park, St Catherine.

A subsequent DNA test confirmed that the baby belonged to a couple whose child was snatched from the hospital on January 9.

The baby boy has since been reunited with his parents.
