COBB COUNTY, Ga. — A woman who says her newborn baby died because she received inadequate medical care while in the Cobb County jail is suing the county and sheriff's office.

Taylor Hogan says she was 5 1/2 months pregnant when she was jailed on a charge of possession of stolen property in August 2010. On Aug. 10, 2010, Hogan delivered her baby in a bathroom after complaining of severe cramping. The baby, who Hogan named Savante, died nine hours later at a hospital.
