MT. MOUNT HOLLY, N.J. (AP) — A woman accused of dousing her newborn daughter with accelerant, setting her on fire and leaving her in the middle of a road is due in court Tuesday to answer to a murder charge.PEMBERTON Twp., NJ (CBS) – A 22-year-old woman charged with murdering her newborn baby by setting the infant on fire Friday night is expected to make her first court appearance on Tuesday. HOLLY, N.J. (CBS) — A police affidavit, released by the Burlington County prosecutor’s office, states that a Pemberton woman, now being held on a half-million dollars bail, charged with setting her newborn infant ablaze Friday night, was standing over the burning infant when they arrived on the gruesome scene.

According to the affidavit, evidence at the home of the woman, 22-year-old Hyphernkemberly Dorvilier, a mile and a half away on Rutgers Avenue, suggests she had just given birth. Under New Jersey’s Safe Haven Infant Protection Act a mother can anonymously drop off a baby younger than 30 days old at any police station or hospital emergency room. “Take the child to emergency room, take child to the police station. Dorvilier was found with a can of WD-40 and a lighter in her jacket pocket, and the baby suffered third-degree burns over about 60 percent of her body, investigators said in court documents released by Burlington County prosecutors Tuesday. There was no answer at the two-story yellow house where Dorvilier lived with her mother and sister on a quiet suburban street in Pemberton, a town of about 28,000.
