Ealey expected to appear in court Tuesday

Posted: Updated:

JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - Sheila Ealey, 41, of Flora is expected to appear in court in Madison County Tuesday.

Ealey turned herself into authorities late Friday in connection with the on going investigation of a baby's body found inside a suitcase.

The infant was found Friday behind Smith Chapel Baptist Church.

That's on Livingston-Vernon Road in Flora.

An autopsy has been performed on the infant's body.

The Madison County sheriff says DNA testing will confirm whether Ealey is indeed the mother of the newborn.

Ealey is being held in the Madison County Detention Center without bond.
