    •Amanda Hein allegedly wrapped newborn in plastic bag, left him in toilet tank
    •Prosecutors claim Hein returned to table, watched rest of pay-per-view event afterward
    •Hein is charged with criminal homicide.......

    When Hein came back, Rivera allegedly asked if she was OK, and she said she was but she was in pain. She stayed for about an hour to watch the rest of the event. Rivera noticed that there appeared to be liquid on Hein’s clothes that looked like blood, Morganelli said.

    Rivera said he asked Hein multiple times if she needed to go a hospital but she refused, so he dropped her off at home, according to authorities.......

    Northhampton County Coroner Zachary Lysek reminded reporters that Pennsylvania has safe haven laws that allow a parent to relinquish a child to the state at any hospital up to 28 days after birth with no questions asked.

    “It’s a sad situation,” Morganelli said. “This young lady made a very, very bad choice. Why? I don’t know.”.........

    They are considering the death penalty in her case...

    This story is just so sad.

    So many people out there would have welcomed this child and loved him.

    Selfishness.

    I just do not understand how any mother could murder her own defenseless newborn baby. How on earth does a young woman become that callous, and that devoid of any motherly instinct?

    There just isn't a crime any colder or more evil than killing a child....especially your own baby.

    How do you deliver an almost full term baby in a bar stall and suffocate the baby and return to your friends to watch the pay-per-view?

    How?

    How?

    She was at the bar with 2 male 'friends.' How much you want to bet that one 'friend' was either a new boyfriend or someone she wanted for a boyfriend?


    Statements from Hein's stepmother indicate that she and Hein had talked about if she ever got pregnant, and it was made clear to Hein that they would make room for a child. But they didn't know that she was pregnant.

    Does anyone know what time of the evening these pay for view wrestling matches occur at the sports bars?

    Lindsey Lowe was recently convicted of murder and I think she got life for the same thing. But that toilet was at her parents home where she lived. She put the infant into the toilet (it was twin boys) and then in the dirty clothes hamper as I recall.

    Cold and callous. That's what I feel about any woman who could murder and then discard the baby she gave birth to. Excuse will fly, but leave politics out of this - She had a choice - she could have gotten help to deliver that baby and then give it up for adoption. In fact, she could have arranged for an adoption before this baby was born. She clearly was not interested in making any plans for this baby after it was born. That tells me that she neither wanted this baby nor cared anough about its precious life to bother finding anyone who would want the poor little babe once she was "free" of it.
