WARREN COUNTY, Ky. (CNN) — Kentucky authorities arrest three-people in connection with the selling of a baby.

The mother, 31-year-old Maria Domingo-Perez, was contacted by police after school officials say they heard about a woman giving a baby away.

According to police, Domingo-Perez gave “conflicting statements” but later confessed to handing the baby over to a couple.

Those two – Catarina Jose Felipe and Jose Manuel Pascual – admitted they paid $2,000 dollars for the child.

Jail records show Pascual and the two women were arrested and charged with selling/purchasing a child for adoption.

The age and gender of the baby was not released.

Police say the baby and Domingo-Perez’s additional four children are now in protective custody.
