Using data collected in the region of the γ(4S) resonance with the CLEO II detector operating at the Cornell Electron Storage Ring, we report on evidence for the production of ++ and c0 baryons in B decays, with c→Λc+π. This observation is based on 77±19 c++ and 76±21 c0 candidates from B decays. We find the product branching fractions B(B̄→cX)B(Λc+→pK-π+) for c=c++, c0, and c+ to be (2.1 ± 0.8 ± 0.7) × 10-4, (2.3 ± 0.8 ± 0.7) × 10-4, and less than 4.8 × 10-4 at 90% confidence level, respectively. A study of the c++ and c0 momentum spectra indicates that B decays to two-body final states with c are suppressed. © 1994 The American Physical Society.
