CONWAY — Alyssa Dayvault, the North Myrtle Beach woman convicted Thursday on two charges of child homicide by child abuse, turned herself in to North Myrtle Beach authorities Friday afternoon, according to the Horry County Sheriff’s Office.
Jail records show that Dayvault was booked into the J. Reuben Long Detention Center at 4:33 p.m.
Dayvault killed her two newborns by throwing them in the trash, a girl in 2017 and a boy in 2018.
Her sentence has been sealed by Judge Steven John until Dayvault can appear in court, which will likely be early next week. She faces life in prison.
Dayvault was not present for her trial, which began Oct. 12 with jury selection. When she was not present on Monday, Judge John issued a bench warrant.
Dayvault was granted bond in May 2019, which is why she wasn’t already in custody prior to the trial.
