There may be nothing more horrific than the murder of a baby. But that’s allegedly what one college girl did just moments after giving birth — she murdered her newborn by putting her in a plastic bag, and then dumped her in a trash can outside of her sorority house.
The identity of the mother accuse of killing her newborn daughter at a college in Ohio has been revealed.
Emile Weaver allegedly put her baby in a plastic bag shortly after giving birth and then threw her in a trash can outside of her sorority house at Muskingum University in Zanesville.
The baby was still alive at the time, and ultimately suffocated to death.
The Columbus Dispatch reports that campus police questioned Weaver on April 22 just hours after the baby was deposited in the bin outside the Delta Gamma Theta house.
Weaver, 20, was a member of the sorority.
She was indicted last Wednesday on charges of aggravated murder, as well as abuse of a corpse and two counts of tampering with evidence.
Weaver was arrested at her house shortly after and is being held on $1million bail.
She is facing life in prison.
Causing further outrage is the fact that since 2001 Ohio has had a Safe Haven law, meaning that mothers are protected from prosecution if they leave their baby at a fire station or with a police officer or hospital worker within 30 days of the child’s birth as long as the baby exhibits no signs of abuse.
Furthermore, mothers can drop off their baby anonymously.
‘It’s extremely hurtful,’ said Dave Boyer, director of Muskingum County Children Services.
‘What a hurtful tragedy to think that a newborn could be given a chance at a healthy, stable life by doing nothing more than saying, ‘I can’t do this. Can you take her?’ It’s breathtakingly tragic.’
There was literally no reason that this baby had to die, and yet she did — that someone could be so monstrous is terrifying to contemplate. No infant should be robbed of their life before they’ve even had the chance to live.
