MADISON COUNTY (WLBT) - An arrest has been made in the case of a baby who's body was found in a suitcase behind a church near Flora.

Madison County Sheriff Toby Trowbridge says 41-year-old Sheila Ealey, of Flora, turned herself in to authorities late Friday night between 9 and 10pm.

An autopsy has been performed on the infant's body and Sheriff Trowbridge says DNA testing will confirm whether Ealey is the mother of the newborn.

Ealey is being held in the Madison County Detention Center without bond and will appear in court Tuesday.
