Unlicensed Midwife Charged With Murder

Updated: Friday, March 29 2013, 06:15 AM EDT

An unlicensed midwife faces a murder charge in a botched delivery that left a baby dead. 44-year-old Tina Bailey appeared in Buncombe District Court Thursday morning and entered a not guilty plea. Court records say Bailey lacked experience and training to provide medical services to expectant mothers. Authorities say Asheville is at the center of a vibrant underground midwife community. They say these are unlicensed midwives operating illegally like the case of Tina Bailey.
