    This woman is 28 years old. She knew what was happening. Lock this POS up and throw away the key.

    Amazing. And not in a good way. Does she have other children? At least with her in custody they will be safe!

    Mother accused of drowning newborn in toilet

    Sanchia Rae Xavier-Velez is charged with aggravated child abuse and first-degree murder.

    Police suspect Xavier-Velez drowned her daughter at her apartment near the Orlando Executive Airport. An autopsy determined that the 4-pound, 5-ounce baby was born alive, though Xavier-Velez insisted she was stillborn.

    A doctor found evidence that the girl had been breathing before she died.

    Her lungs were expanded and she had an air bubble in her stomach "which indicated she was gasping for air," reports show. She also had water in her lungs.

    Xavier-Velez is being held without bond at the Orange County Jail.

    She also has a 7-year-old daughter, who has been placed in supervised care by the Department of Children and Families.

    December 2012 - sentenced to max. 3 years prison after pleading no contest to aggravated child abuse, plus 10 years probation. One of the probation terms was to have no unsupervised contact with her older child, unless approved by DCF

    A manslaughter charge was dropped.

    I guess a infant's life is not worth much in Florida..
