Accused teen is sent to sister's home

January 18, 1995

The teen-ager charged with trying to kill her newborn baby by throwing her from a third-floor window was released from jail on her own recognizance yesterday to reside with her sister while she awaits trial.

Anne Arundel County District Judge Martha Rasin ordered Michelle Elizabeth Savage, 17, to stay at her sister's Meade Village townhouse rather than return to their mother's apartment around the corner, because the apartment has no telephone.

Ms. Savage, charged as an adult with attempted first-degree murder and child abuse, is not to leave the residence in the 1800 block of Meade Village Circle except for school and visits to her lawyer and doctors.

The judge did not specifically rule that Ms. Savage may not see her daughter, who was listed in stable condition at Anne Arundel Medical Center with skull fractures and other injuries from her fall Saturday afternoon. The judge also ordered a psychiatric evaluation.
