A Wisconsin babysitter has been charged with murder after she allegedly handed a dead infant's corpse to his mom, disguised in a snowsuit and with a pulled hat over his lifeless eyes, police said.

Marissa Tietsort, 28, tried to hide the death of a 2-month-old boy who died of blunt force trauma while in her care, by returning the dead corpse wrapped in a snowsuit, strapped into a car seat with a hat pulled over his eyes, to his unsuspecting mother.

The mother took the baby and his older brother to a laundromat. She later discovered that he wasn't breathing, and was cold to the touch. She tried to perform CPR on the baby while her sister called 911.

"She thought the baby was sleeping as he would normally be sleeping at that time of the day, " according to the complaint.
