A woman indicted for killing her two newborn babies and storing their bodies in a home refrigerator was sentenced to eight years in prison by a court Thursday. The woman was charged with strangling her two babies to death shortly after their births in 2018 and 2019, respectively, and keeping their bodies in a refrigerator in her apartment in Suwon, 30 kilometers south of Seoul.
She admitted to killing the babies, one boy and one girl, due to economic hardships while raising three children, and said she lied to her husband that she had an abortion, according to police. “The victims, just a day old since birth, were independent human beings who had to rely on the defendant, and who needed her protection,” the Suwon District Court said. The court rejected a request from her lawyer that she be tried on charges not of murder, but infanticide that carries lighter punishment and also dismissed claims that she stored the bodies, 카지노사이트킹 instead of concealing them, for a funeral later.
