A New Jersey mom allegedly burned her newborn baby alive, police said when arresting Hyphernkemberly Dorvilier. Horrified and shocked witnesses thought Dorvilier was merely burning trash. The baby was found burning alive in Pemberton Township, and sadly succumbed to the severe injuries a shot time later at local hospital.
Hyphernkemberly Dorvilier, 22, was charged with murder for allegedly burning her baby alive. One New Jersey resident said the Pemberton Township mom told passersby that she was burning "dog feces." Burlington County prosecutors are currently investigating the newborn baby's death.
Witnesses to the baby burning homicide told police that New Jersey mom Hyphernkemberly Dorvilier poured some type of flammable liquid on her newborn daughter before setting the infant on fire along the roadway.
"It was just horrible. Like nothing you've ever seen," neighbor David Joseph told the media.
Joseph added that due to the woman's apparently calm demeanor, he thought she was just dumping trash after stepping out of her Land Rover.
"We saw the fire and thought someone was burning trash," he added.
When Joseph's wife realized a baby was burning alive, she screamed and Dorvilier attempted to run away from the area. David Joseph managed to restrain the New Jersey mom until the police arrived. A makeshift memorial for the baby burned alive by her mother now stands where the homicide took place.
"It was just mind boggling. It was nightmare even if you have a strong heart. Hopefully she'll pay for it," Joseph concluded.
New Jersey emergency responders rushed the severely burnt baby to the hospital. She was reportedly still breathing when she was airlifted to St. Christopher's Hospital in Philadelphia, but died approximately two hours later. Hyphernkemberly Dorvilier was reportedly taken to Deborah Hospital in Brown Mills, New Jersey, after being taken into police custody. After medical staff determined that she was stable enough to leave the hospital, she was transported to the local jail. Hyphernkemberly Dorvilier is reportedly being held on a $500,000 bail, and has been charged with one count of murder.
An autopsy on the baby burned alive will be performed by Burlington County Medical Examiner Dr. Ian Hood.
"The details of the baby's birth are being investigated. The investigation is being conducted by detectives from the Pemberton Township Police Department and the Burlington County Prosecutor's Office," a released from New Jersey law enforcement officials said.
