A New Mexico teenager accused of murdering her newborn in a hospital bathroom will be allowed to attend university classes in person, a judge ruled on Tuesday afternoon.

Alexee Trevizo, 19, appeared in an Eddy County court via Zoom with her attorney, Gary C. Mitchell, for a pre-trial hearing to dispense with several motions and counter-motions recently filed in her case.

She is charged with murder in the first degree, child abuse, and tampering with evidence over the Jan. 27 birth of her son, who was found in the trash by staff at Artesia General Hospital. The defense alleges the child was stillborn. Prosecutors allege the boy was murdered – citing a medical examiner’s report that classified his death as a homicide based on the presence of air in his lungs.
