LAFAYETTE, LA (WAFB) -

A Lafayette woman was arrested Thursday for the death of an infant 14 years ago.

The Lafayette Police were called out Thursday morning to the 2100 block of Verot School Road for suspicious circumstances. When they got there, officers were told by a witness that he thought he had found a dead infant while going through some boxes in a storage unit. The man had recently bought it in an auction at the Bridge Storage.

During the investigation, detectives named 57-year-old Rebecca Landry of Lafayette as a suspect. During the interview with Landry, police say she confessed the infant died in 2001.

Landry was arrested and charged with second degree murder.

The investigation into the infant's death is still ongoing and no other information was released by police.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Lafayette Police or Crime Stoppers at (337) 232-8477.
