COMMERCE CITY, Colo. – Prosecutors say Sharrieckia Page smothered her infant son in his crib and then disposed of his body in a dumpster, according to court documents released Monday.

Page, 22, faces charges of first degree murder and child abuse resulting in death. The remains of Torrey Brown Jr. were found in a Denver landfill last Wednesday, two months after the child disappeared from his mother’s apartment complex in Commerce City.

“The allegations are that (Page) smothered her 7-month-old son in his crib, left him for a few hours, then returned and placed his body in a book bag before throwing him out in a dumpster,” the District Attorney’s Office for Adams County said in a court filing related to Page’s bond. “The Defendant has recently made statements that if she were to kill one child she would’ve killed them all because they are ‘bad.’”

Page is currently being held without bond in the Adams County Jail.
