Woman Gives Birth On Carnival Dream, Leaves Baby To Die Under Bed, Faces 8 Years in Jail
Indiana woman Alicia Keir gave birth on a Caribbean cruise ship and left her baby to die under the bed. Keir, 24, pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter and faces up to eight years in prison for the crime. The DeMotte, Indiana, woman will face sentencing in August.
Alicia Keir told police investigators that she was pregnant when she got on the Carnival Dream cruise ship. Keir said that while she knew she was pregnant and about to give birth, the friends who went on the cruise with her to celebrate a birthday did not.
The Indiana woman was 20 at the time of the birth of her baby girl. Alicia Keir eventually told the police investigating the death of the baby that she went into labor while the Carnival Dream cruise ship was in between ports of call. Keir said she gave birth to her baby alone inside her rented cabin and then wrapped the baby in a towel. The Indiana woman said she then placed her daughter under the bed.
Keir said the baby girl born on the Carnival Dream cruise ship in 2011 did not make a sound or move after being wrapped in the blanket and placed under the bed. The Indiana woman said that despite the quietness and lack of movement, she knew her baby was born alive.
