Mom kills newborn baby by stabbing him 22 times with nail scissors
Anastasia Skorychenko, 30, appeared in court in Mykolaiv, southern Ukraine, on Monday for the murder of her newborn baby.
The accused had hidden her third pregnancy from those around her. That night, she gave birth alone at home while her 2 daughters, aged 7 and 4, and their grandmother were sleeping.
She settled on the balcony and gave birth to her baby in a basin.
Then the young woman grabbed nail scissors and stabbed her newborn son 22 times.
The mutilated body of the newborn will be found the next day by a resident in a plastic bag in a trash can near the building of the murderer.
The police identified the mother a few hours later. She spontaneously confessed the facts to the investigators. The autopsy confirmed that the baby was born viable.
Anastasia Skorychenko was sentenced yesterday to two years in prison.
