The woman charged with stealing the baby from the UHWI, is to appear before the Kingston and St. Andrew Parish Court on Wednesday.

She’s 47-year-old, Lorna Williams, a medical assistant from Mountain View Avenue in Kingston.

She’s been charged with child stealing.

The child was found in Williams’ care in Rollington Town in the parish about five hours after she was reported missing.

Police say the baby had been delivered on Thursday, and was last seen in the cot adjacent to the mother’s bed earlier that morning.

At the time of the child’s disappearance, the only people in the ward were nurses on duty, and doctors and other medical staff making clinical rounds.
