A Lycoming County woman is in jail on an abuse of a corpse charge. Authorities say Chesney Anne Wheeler apparently gave birth prematurely to a daughter at 29 weeks at her Williamsport-area home last month. Wheeler told police she later drove to a drug treatment center and a friend's place with the baby in a cardboard box in the backseat of her car. While seeking treatment at Wilkes-Barre Hospital that night, staff say they became suspicious about Wheeler's story of miscarrying the baby and flushing it down the toilet. Police say they later found the baby's body in Wheeler's backseat.
