    Mom Accused of Setting Baby on Fire 'Sorry': Report
    Burlington County Prosecutor's Office
    Hyphernkemberly Dorvilier, 22, is charged in her daughter's death.

    A New Jersey woman accused of dousing her newborn daughter with accelerant, setting her on fire and leaving her in the middle of a road repeatedly said, "I'm sorry," as a man held her down moments after the incident occurred, a local newspaper reported.

    The Philadelphia Inquirer also reported that a woman who called 911 from the scene told the suspect, 22-year-old Hyphernkemberly Dorvilier of Pemberton, that she was "disgusting."

    The newspaper obtained a copy of the chaotic 911 call through a public records request.

    Dorvilier told the woman, "It's not mine, it's not mine," then said, "I didn't do it, I didn't do it, I didn't do it."
