PHOENIX — Police say a woman has been arrested on suspicion of unlawful disposal of human remains after her newborn baby was found dead inside an Amazon distribution center in southwest Phoenix last week.

They say 22-year-old Samantha Vivier was booked into jail Tuesday.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Vivier had a lawyer who could speak on her behalf.
