The 47 year-old medical assistant who’s accused of stealing a one-day-old baby from the University Hospital of the West Indies, UHWI, last week is to appear in the St. Andrew parish Court today.

She’s Lorna Williams, of a Mountain View Avenue address.

Williams, who’s remanded in custody without bail, is charged with child stealing.

The baby was delivered last Thursday.

However, 24 hours later, the child was missing from the hospital.

Police said the baby was found last week Friday, in Williams’ care in Rollington Town, five hours after she was reported missing.

Police say Williams told them she stole the baby to show her to her boyfriend.

According to the police, Williams lied to her boyfriend who is off the island, that she was pregnant.

He was returning to the island and she wanted to show him the new born as his child.
