Inspector Linekela Shikongo confirmed to Namibian Sun that she was released on N$800 bail and the matter was postponed to 12 September.
It is alleged that Stefanus gave birth to a boy in the early hours of Saturday morning. She is said to have wrapped his body in plastic, burying him near the fence of a nearby plot. Nampa reports that the baby may have been buried alive, although this is yet to be confirmed by an autopsy. Charges will be added if the baby was alive.
Warrant Officer Anna Kunga of the police's public relations unit in Omusati Region told Nampa that dogs had dug up the tiny body which was discovered on Monday morning at around 07:00.
Stefanus is said to be a domestic worker at Ongongolwa village.
