    EDMONTON — The jury is still out in the case of Katrina Effert, an Alberta woman who was 19 years old when she gave birth alone in her parent's basement and then strangled her baby with a pair of orange thong underwear.

    Jurors retired to deliberate Thursday shortly after 5 p.m.

    Effert is charged with second-degree murder, but has admitted to the lesser included offence of infanticide.

    A young Alberta woman charged with killing her newborn baby in 2005 has been found guilty of second-degree murder.

    But the lawyer for 23-year-old Katrina Effert said he plans to challenge the jury's verdict and will apply to have the case declared a mistrial, calling it a "perverse and unreasonable" outcome.
