The Baton Rouge Police Dept. located and arrested Princess Beachem, 32, who was wanted for Feticide which occurred in September.

Beachem was taken into custody on Friday and charged with a single count of 2nd Degree Feticide.

Investigators say Beachem went to a local hospital on September 18th with stomach paints. Beachem was pregnant at the time. During an exam, doctors found no heartbeat from the infant and performed an emergency c-section.

The baby, a male, was stillborn. EBR Parish Coroner Beau Clark determined that the fetus died from placental feticide, and ruled the death a homicide.

An arrest warrant was issued for Beachem on November 12th.

She was transported to EBR Parish Prison and is being held in lieu of a $100,000 bond, and she could receive up to 10 years in prison.
