MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY -

We have an update on charges being filed regarding the newborn found in the dumpster in McCracken County last month. 

The infant was found in the dumpster on July 30. A 17-year-old boy accused of leaving the child there was arrested and charged with attempted murder the next day.

County Attorney Sam Clymer tells Local 6 the teenager will be charged as an adult. Clymer will file the transfer papers Wednesday.
