Woman of 29 charged with stabbing new-born to death

Police have charged a 29-year-old woman with the murder of her new-born baby in the town of Krnov in the Moravia-Silesia Region. The woman is accused of stabbing the baby to death immediately after its birth last Thursday, a spokesperson for the police said. The woman had kept her pregnancy secret and said she had miscarried when a medical team was called out to treat her for heavy bleeding; they subsequently found the baby’s body hidden in her bed.
