Mom Killed Newborn Daughter, Then Lived With Her Body for 3 Months

A New York woman was arrested for killing her newborn daughter.

On Saturday, police in Batavia charged Christina Colantonio with murder after a friend found the body of a dead newborn in her apartment.

The person called the police who determined that Colantonio was living with the corpse of her newborn for three months.

Investigators say the mother killed her newborn “shortly after birth.”

Police did not release information about how the child died but say they “have enough evidence to come to a conclusion it was intentionally caused.”

A medical examiner will determine the official cause of death.

“It’s not something you see on a regular basis,” Sgt. Todd Crossett told “They are the most vulnerable part of the population.”

Colantonio was ordered to be held without bail.
