A Colorado woman accused of throwing her minute-old newborn baby over a fence to his death in the back yard of a neighbor has been found guilty of first-degree murder.
Camille Wasinger-Konrad, 23, gave birth to a baby girl in her bedroom in the early morning of January 2, 2018, in a community called Highland Ranch.
Prosecutors said she covered the baby's mouth with her hand to muffle the screams, carried it outside in a blanket, and then threw the child over the eight-meter fence that separated her landlord's house from property from a neighbor.
She was arrested on the night of January 2 after delegates received a 911 call from Wasinger-Konrad's neighbor, Jeanette Barich, who discovered the body of a lifeless baby on her deck when she was about to use her bubble bath.

She said it was her dog that led her to the baby. The newborn had still confirmed his umbilical cord, reported Fox 31.
On Wednesday, a jury found Wasinger-Konrad guilty of first-degree murder, tampering with physical evidence and the position of accusation of the murder of confidence, according to the 18th judicial district office in a statement.
Valerie Brewster, deputy public prosecutor, told the jury that the child had stayed in the neighbor's backyard for a total of 15 hours.

& # 39; This defendant continued her day knowing that her nameless daughter was helpless there. She thought and made that choice, & said Brewster, according to the prosecutor's office.
Attorney George Brauchler described the actions of Wasinger-Konrad as & # 39; disgusting & # 39 ;.
He said: & # 39; Of all the many emotions of the magical first moments in a baby's life, Of all the many tender moments that a mother shared in that first embrace with a completely helpless and fragile life, smothering a newborn and his body throwing over a fence in the cold of January is hard to understand. & # 39;
The Douglas County Sheriff delegates who responded to the 500 block of Longfellow Lane shortly before 10 p.m. searched the area and found a bloody shower curtain in a garbage bin from Barich's neighbor Wasinger-Konrad.
The 23-year-old told the police that she did not want to get into trouble about having a baby and & # 39; is just from & # 39;
The woman's landlord told investigators that she had cleaned a large amount of blood from the upstairs bathroom that her four-month tenant used that morning, but said she didn't know Wasinger-Konrad might have been pregnant.
During Tuesday's preliminary hearing, the court heard that Wasinger-Konrad told the investigators at the time of her arrest that she did not know she expected this until she gave birth at home.
She explained that on January 6 between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m. she was awakened by painful stomach cramps and & # 39; the baby just came out & # 39 ;.
The 23-year-old woman told a detective that she did not want to get into trouble and added: & # 39; I just got rid of & # 39 ;, referring to her child.
Blood proof presented in court indicated that the child bounced off a handrail and the back of a lounger before landing on the deck of Barich, where her dog caught its scent about 14 hours later.
A detective testified that a person who worked at Wasinger-Konrad at a local King Soopers supermarket told him that the 23-year-old had recently applied for a new schedule and assignment for a less physically demanding job citing her pregnancy.
She faces a mandatory life sentence without conditional release and must be sentenced on November 15.
