Police in upstate New York have charged the mother of a missing baby with multiple felonies after the remains of a child were found near her home.

Schenectady police say Heaven Puleski was under investigation since family members reported her 4-month-old child Rayen Puleski had not been seen since July. Puleski has been charged with felony tampering with physical evidence and concealment of a human corpse following a Tuesday interview with detectives.

On Monday, Schenectady police said more tests needed to be done to determine whether the remains discovered behind the 38-year-old woman's apartment are those of Rayen Puleski.

Local police, state investigators and FBI agents are continuing to investigate.

Puleski was set to be arraigned Wednesday.
