Published Dec 27, 2010


Berlin - A woman who gave birth over Christmas killed her newborn baby by throwing it from a window, police said on Monday.

Neighbours found the naked baby lying in the snow in a back yard late Sunday. It died in hospital a few hours later.

Police arrested the 20-year old woman, who admitted the crime, saying she was alone when she gave birth, in her apartment on the first floor of the building.

Officers are investigating whether the woman suffered from a psychological disorder. A judge is due to decide whether to uphold her arrest on suspicion of manslaughter. - Sapa-dpa
