Verkhnyaya Pyshma court begins review of case of newborns killed in freezer
"The woman claims she had a psychotrauma after giving birth and that she was not aware of her actions," Alexander Shulga, a member of the regional department's investigative committee, said, according to ITAR-TASS. "She denied filicide charges."
The bodies of two infants were discovered in a Tsentralny department store freezer during an inspection this May. One body was discovered to have been kept in the freezer for five years, and the other for three years.
The suspect has been charged with first degree murder. If convicted, she faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in a maximum security prison, ITAR-TASS reports.
