According to the Asheville Citizen-Times, city police on Wednesday charged an Asheville midwife with killing an unborn child through a mishandled delivery.

Tina Louise Bailey, 44, of Craig Circle Drive, provided medical services to a woman in labor in July, according to an arrest warrant. Those included catheterization and internal obstetrical examinations, police said. Bailey also gave medical advice without the training to do so, investigators said.

She was charged with murder of an unborn child. The warrant states Bailey told the mother she was able to provide all necessary care during labor. The warrant was first made public Wednesday afternoon. The baby’s mother could not be reached.
