ATHENS - Police said a newborn infant was stabbed to death in an Athens house, hours after being born.

Athens-Clarke police say the newborn's 21-year-old mother, Cassandra Elyse Norwood, has been charged with murder in connection with the baby's death Thursday afternoon.

Norwood was under guard at a hospital in Athens, where she was being treated for blood loss from giving birth. It wasn't clear early Friday whether she has an attorney.

Athens-Clarke police Capt. Clarence Holeman said investigators determined the baby boy was born in the home where she lived with her parents and other family members in the Waverly Woods subdivision.

Police said Norwood was alone in one part of the house when she gave birth without anyone else knowing.
