Officers responding to the Bronx apartment building on Monday after an emergency call found the dead infant with her umbilical cord still attached in a courtyard. A medical examiner ruled Tuesday the baby died of multiple blunt force injuries.
Authorities believe Berry hid her pregnancy from her boyfriend. He told police he was in another room when the baby was born and when the baby plunged from the window.
Berry is in custody. It's unclear if she has an attorney who can comment for her.
