In December of 2017, Hanford native, 34-year-old Adora Perez gave birth to her 10th child, who was a stillborn baby.



The charge was initially dropped when Perez pleaded no contest to voluntary manslaughter.

But this past March, the murder charge was reinstated by the Kings County District Attorney's Office.

It's been dropped again after months of deliberation by prosecutors.
