A woman from the community Nizhnij Kongazchik of the Comrat city was sentenced to 15 years in prison. The defendant is accused of murder of 9 month old baby.
According to prosecutors, in February 2015, the defendant kept closed the mouth and nose of a 9-month-old boy, until he suffocated.
During the interrogation, the woman denied the murder of her only child. She insisted that the baby has accidentally suffocated.
Medical-forensic examination, however, showed the contrary, namely, that the death of the child was as a result of actions of the defendant.
In addition, psychiatric and psychological examination carried out by order of the prosecutor's office, concluded that at the time of crime she was of sound mind.
The defendant of 24 years old is married, but at the time of crime her husband was at work in another village.
The judgment can be appealed in a higher court
