Charges have now been laid in connection to the death of a newborn baby more than two years ago.

Police combed the Saskatoon landfill in November 2010 in search of the body of a baby girl.

Police said a teen had given birth in her home and threw out the dead body.

They searched for seven days before giving up.

Now, police say a recent investigation has led to charges.

The woman involved, who is 19, has been charged with not getting help with childbirth and concealing the body of a child.

She will appear in court May 1.
