    Whoa, this 16 yo is really awful. How could she stab her newborn baby???

    Hello, what would have been wrong with taking that healthy baby girl to a Safe Haven???

    According to this article, she didn't just cut and stab this innocent baby, she beat her with a blunt object!

    The baby also suffered from "blunt force injuries" to her head, chest and back.

    Exactly, fhc....she didn't have to do this...just total wanton unnecessary cruelty...I hope she spends the rest of her life in prison and hears her baby's cries in her mind all day and night...

    It's extremely infuriating. Plenty of people would be more than happy to adopt a healthy newborn. That child could have had a happy life.

    Stories like this pang me for every woman & man who long for nothing more than a baby to love and care for. How a mother can feel no connection to her baby starting in the womb and cause this harm is beyond anything I can begin to understand.

    I simply cannot imagine stabbing and hitting your newborn baby. She had to be screaming. How could someone be that cold? I don't care how young she is. We're talking stabbed to death with a pair of scissors. It makes me sick to my stomach to even think about it.

    In this area crime is on the rise. I couldn't believe the news tonight on wavy. A young 20's navy guy abused a 10mth old child and the child died. Not is child his gf's.

    Three teens arrested and charged with attempted murder. They set a house that was converted into a few apartments on fire. Knowing people would die. That was the point. It was their initiation into a gang.

    13 year old shot and died buy a teen playing with a gun.

    Last week a man was found burning on fire, dead..he was a felon.

    3 shot one dead last month, hotel in willamsburg. Robbery

    News stated gun ownership has gone up here...and 3 victims shot a would be perp in the last few months. People are starting to pack and I don't blame them.

    Sorry to go ot a bit but with this area to me seems to be having a lot of children being killed by mothers! I think this is like 5 or 6 in the past year! DISGUSTING! I hope they throw the book at her.

    She couldn't be bothered to wrap her in a blanket and leave her on a doorstep somewhere? Couldn't leave her at a fire station or hospital? Had to stab her with scissors? Lord have Mercy.

    Selfish, immature and out of touch with reality. Possibly mentally ill. Most of the time these young girls drown their babies or throw them away to die. It takes a real piece of work to beat and stab her tiny, helpless baby. Something is terribly wrong with this girl. It seems like she hated this baby.
    It's times like this when I really hope there is a heaven. Poor little murdered children get no chance to live their lives on earth...I want to believe that they are angels now...happy and feeling no pain.

    Stories like this make me wonder what in the world has happened to people. It's like Invasion of the Body Snatchers or something.

    Incredible, the cruelty and depravity we're seeing these days.

    This 16-yr old monster needs to be locked up tight in a secure facility for the rest of her life.

    From everything I could find, it appears she's still awaiting trial. So sad, so little information about the baby. I'd like to know, since the baby girl was born alive, was she ever given a name and a proper burial??

    Every high school & college campus in this country should have people doing lectures & handing out pamphlets on Save Haven in their county!! I know there are some states that don't have Safe Haven,but they should!!!
    Their are so many young girls out there that do not know about Safe Haven..Lord this case is horrible.RIP little Angel

    10-12 years and then free as a bird. She'll probably get out sooner on "good behavior".

    Unbelievable.
