Woman who murdered newborn baby girl given life sentence without parole
Last week a Zanesville, Ohio, jury convicted Emile Weaver of “aggravated murder, gross abuse of a corpse, and two counts of tampering with evidence for placing her newborn baby girl in a plastic trash bag on April 22, 2015, suffocating her,” according to the Columbia Dispatch’s Jennifer Smola. The jury took less than an hour to reach its verdict.
On Monday Muskingum County Common Pleas Judge Mark Fleegle sentenced the 21-year-old Weaver to life in prison without parole.
Smola initially told investigators she didn’t know she was pregnant until she had her baby on the toilet at the Delta Gamma Theta sorority house where she was a member. However when she testified last Friday, she told a different story.
