Investigators said Kennedy had been involved in a sexual relationship with a girl who was 16 years old at the time.
According to a criminal complaint, when the girl became pregnant, Kennedy instructed her to try to abort the pregnancy, telling her to ingest vitamins and herbal supplements known to cause fetal morbidity and premature labor.
Police said the baby boy was born alive in October 2017. While the teenager first said she strangled the infant upon its birth, she later said that she was lying to protect Kennedy and that he was the one who killed the child and instructed her to put the baby boy in a box in her closet.
When police searched the home, they found the infant’s body locked in a safe filled with cement.
The mother, meanwhile, had to undergo 35 surgeries and spent eight months in the hospital.
