 At the age of 20, Alicia Keir, who is now 24-years-old, gave birth to a healthy baby girl on a Caribbean cruise ship and left the her to die beneath a bed.

Alicia, from DeMotte, Indiana, pleaded guilty to an involuntary manslaughter charge in federal court on Wednesday and she is said to face up to eight years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000 when she is finally sentenced on August 20.

According to reports, she had previously told authorities that she knew she was pregnant when she boarded the Carnival Dream in October 2011 to celebrate her friend's birthday, but her fellow travelers did not. She went into labor between ports of call and was alone at the time when she gave birth to the girl in her cabin before wrapping the baby in a towel and hiding her beneath her bed.

“She did not move. She did not make a sound”, Keir told U.S. District Judge Rudy Lozano, as she added that she knew the baby was born alive.  'I should have gotten help,' she said.

A cleaning crew found the little girl dead the next day when the ship arrived at port in St. Maarten.

A doctor found out that, the baby died from exposure and lack of care, U.S. Attorney Randall Stewart said. Court records show the baby was born without any diseases or defects.
