Neighbors are said to have heard a woman’s cries around 2 a.m. Tuesday as she screamed, “My sister killed her baby!” One neighbor who rushed over and looked inside; seeing the child’s body and 28-year-old Rochelle Brown, the mother, said he can’t ‘un-see’ what he saw and it is an image that will continue to haunt him.”

“I notice she had blood on her hands, so I was just trying to keep my eyes on her,” Assunti Anderson told the media. “At that time the sister said ‘my nephews are still inside.”

Because officers had yet to arrive, Anderson said he convinced the mother to walk outside. He noticed she kept repeating, “I need Jesus. I need Jesus.”

Brown is said to have left behind a bad relationship in Nebraska.
