A California grandmother allegedly drowned her grandson hours after his birth, later wrapping him in a bag and burying him in the backyard to 'prevent family shame', court documents say.
Beant Kaur Dhillon, 43, is accused of a number of charges including first-degree murder after her 15-year-old daughter suddenly gave birth at their Bakersfield home, in November.
Dhillon pleaded not guilty to all charges on Thursday afternoon. She's expected to reappear in court next week.
According to prosecutors, Dhillon and her 23-year-old nephew, Bakhshinderpal Singh Mann, reportedly discovered that Dhillon's daughter had given birth in the bathroom of their home on Shining Craig Avenue.
