Weatherford woman charged with killing infant

A 22-year-old Weatherford woman is in jail, charged with capital murder for the death of her infant. Police arrested Ashley Nicole Blades on Tuesday at her residence on West Ball Street after she led them to the infant’s body in the trunk of her car. She told police that on Monday night, she covered the infant’s nose and mouth for what she said was a minute or two in an attempt to stop the child from crying. Later, she discovered that the child had died. Police say there’s no indication that Blades ever sought medical attention for the child.
