A court in Oloumouc on Monday sentenced a 25-year-old woman to 17 years in prison for murdering her newborn child. The court said that last May, the woman suffocated the child shortly after birth and dumped the body in a stream near her house in a north Moravian village. The court rejected the woman’s argument that the baby was stillborn, and that she disposed of the body because she was afraid of her partner and parents. Both the defendant and the prosecution have appealed the verdict.
