Alissa Pugh, a Milford Massachusetts woman convicted of involuntary manslaughter in connection with the death of her newborn son was sentenced on Monday to two and a half years behind bars and five years probation in the death of her child. http://www.thebostonchannel.com/cnn-news/19428528/detail.html In 2007, her newborn baby's body was found in the back of a garbage truck. Pugh, 29, delivered a baby boy in January 2007 in her Milford house and then put the baby in a bag and into a trash can. A garbage collector found the baby's remains after dumping the trash from her Milford house. Last January, Pugh was convicted of involuntary manslaughter and improper disposal of a body. Combined sentences threatened to put her behind bars for 20 years. Her attorney asked Monday that she be put on probation with the GPS bracelet. A forensic psychologist told the judge that during birth Pugh suffered from chronic anxiety and episodes of depression. He said she went through a phase of depersonalization. "She retreats into this depersonalized state," her attorney said. "In her mind she has not done anything wrong."
