HILLSBORO, Ore. (AP) - Authorities in Oregon say they have arrested a woman after a newborn she claimed was hers died and the body of a woman who had been pregnant was found at her home.

Washington County officials said 27-year-old Korena Elaine Roberts was being held without bail Sunday on a murder charge.

The county sheriff's office said police went to a home in Hillsboro on Friday after a report that a newborn was not breathing.

Officials said Roberts told them she had recently delivered the baby boy.

Roberts and the child were taken to a hospital, where doctors were unable to revive the boy. Authorities said the doctors also determined that Roberts had not given birth.

Officers searched Roberts' home and found the body of 21-year-old Heather Megan Snively in a crawl space.
