A Colorado mother has been convicted of murder after she smothered her baby and threw her over a fence into a neighbors yard.

CNN reports that Camille Wasinger-Konrad, 25, gave birth to a baby girl. She then covered the baby’s mouth and nose to stop her from crying and threw her over a fence into a neighbor’s backyard. The neighbor found the dead newborn at 9:48 p.m. and notified authorities.

Wasinger-Konrad told police that she woke up with bad stomach pains, and that “the baby just came out,” and an officer’s body-cam shows that she said, “I just got rid of it.”
A jury found Wasinger-Konrad guilty of first-degree murder, first-degree murder after deliberation, and tampering with physical evidence.
“This tiny baby was smothered by her mother, flung over a neighbor’s fence and left to die by the only human she had ever known,” Chief Deputy District Attorney Christopher Gallo said in trial. “This defendant hurled her newborn 11 feet over an 8-foot fence, knowingly consigning her to her death. This little girl died in the cold without the dignity of even a name.”
Her sentencing is set for November and she could face live in prison.
