Mother Strangles Her Newborn Baby - You Won’t Believe Her Punishment

A woman from Bognor Regis, West Sussex in the UK has committed an unthinkable act, but she will remarkably not be serving any jail time as a result of her actions. As the Daily Mail reports, the woman murdered her own newborn child just minutes after giving birth.

Gintare Suminaite, 30, had become pregnant as a result of an affair with a man from Lithuania, but she somehow managed to keep it a secret from her live-in boyfriend. The couple had a strained relationship and worked opposite shifts for the same company, and they also have a young child together. Suminaite left work early one day and gave birth in her own bathroom.

She proceeded to strangle the newborn baby girl and placed the body in the bathtub underneath a pile of clothes. Her boyfriend came home and found her in rough shape with blood all over the bathroom, so he immediately summoned an ambulance. Responders - and the boyfriend - were unaware that the child’s body was in the tub. After she admitted what had happened, responders returned to the couple’s home and were stunned and sickened to find the body.

Suminaite was arrested and remanded for 298 days as she awaited trial, but that’s remarkably the harshest aspect of her punishment. The judge has sentenced her to a 24-month community order, with the requirement that she undergo a rehabilitation requirement. The murder charge will ‘lie on file.’

“The unlawful homicide of anyone is a tragedy, especially in the case when the victim is so young, even more so that is the case when the child dies at the hands of her mother. However, your own circumstances were tragic in themselves and that is reflected in the nature of the offence to which you have pleaded guilty. You were overwhelmed by the stress of your situation and in a state of partial denial during the pregnancy. At the time of giving birth your were in a state of extreme anxiety and panic amounting to a temporary impairment of the balance of your mind,” said the sentencing judge.
