A mother in Minnesota who allegedly told authorities that she slit the throat of a three-month-old baby and threw his body in a landfill after the child’s father denied he had been found incompetent to stand trial by a district court judge. That’s according to court documents reviewed by Law & Crime.
According to a probable cause statement obtained by Law & Crime, officers with the St. Fardoussa Omar Abdillahi, 27 years old, after a 911 caller told them that the defendant’s child had died. The man who called said “a baby was missing” and that the baby’s mother had told him “she threw the baby in the trash,” according to the probable cause statement.
The caller became aware of the situation because “the defendant called her mother, who lives out of state, early in the morning of November 28” and reported as such; The mother appeared to have tipped off others who had come to the defendant’s apartment to see what was going on.
“The witnesses answered were all acquainted with the defendant and were told that she had confessed to killing [the child] and put him in the trash can at the back of the apartment,” the probable cause statement continued.
The man called 911 “and other witnesses went looking [the child] but his location could not be determined,” the document continued. “Witnesses were unsure at the time if the defendant was telling the truth and called the police when they couldn’t find the baby.”
Witnesses “came to help and found the defendant crying and alone in her apartment,” the document continued. “The defendant repeatedly said she killed her child and disposed of it.”
The little boy is a little younger than four months old, claims of probable cause. It also states “the defendant lived alone” with the victim in an apartment.
Here’s how the police describe their involvement; Authorities referred to the victim in the police report as “Child A”:
Officers arrived at the scene and spoke to the accused. The staff looked at the children’s belongings in the mansion, but no children were present. The officers asked the defendant where child A lived. Defendant said Child A was in a trash can at the back of the building. As officers searched the trash can, the defendant said she stabbed Child A and put it in a black plastic trash bag before putting it in the trash. At the same time, the police found the dead body of Child A in the trash. The defendant was placed under house arrest and the crime scene was preserved.
The police then read the defendant her Miranda rights; She agreed to talk. She told her interrogators that she started experiencing “headaches and feelings of anxiety and fear” after the birth of her baby. The child’s father also “denies” that the baby is his, she said, according to the probable cause statement.
Again, from the documentation:
Defendant said she was looking at Child A and wondered how she would get help. The defendant admitted that he used a knife to stab Mr. A from the kitchen. The defendant said Child A cried before she stabbed him. Defendant proved that she cut Child A’s throat. Defendant testified that she put Child A in a black bag of baby clothes and put the bag in the trash in her apartment. Defendant said she took the bag to the landfill about five minutes after she stabbed Child A. Defendant said she called her mother about 20 minutes later and told her mother what she he did.
The defendant was arrested on November 28, 2021, at 8:20 a.m., according to records at the Stearns County Sheriff’s Office. The bail is listed in those records as having been set at $2 million.
An autopsy revealed that the baby suffered “a sharp force causing circumferential trauma[y] arrive [the] ancient,” claims the cause may be revealed. “The way to die is judged to be murder.”
According to court filings further in file in Stearns County, Minn., prosecutors secured an indictment against Abdillahi on charges of first-degree premeditated murder and attempted first-degree murder. two (no prior criminal record required). That indictment is dated December 22, 2021. The penalty for premeditated murder is life in prison; The document specifies penalties for second-degree murder of up to 40 years in prison.
After several months of legal wrangling and a mental health assessment, a judge rule that Abdillahi does not have the authority to appear in court right now.

Prosecutors countered with a document dated February 15, 2022 that indicated an intention to pursue the matter if – and when – the defendant “regained capacity.” That document is signed by Assistant District Attorney Stearns Chelsa L. Beaver.
