JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — Prosecutors say a man charged with dumping his dead toddler’s body near train tracks had had the body for months.

They made the assertion Wednesday at a bail hearing for Travis Plummer.

The Richmond, Virginia man was arrested in Puerto Rico in April, a week after the girl’s body was found in a suitcase.

Authorities say Plummer took 23-month-old Te’Myah Layauna Plummer from her mother in Virginia last fall and traveled to New Jersey with the decomposing body wrapped inside a suitcase.
