CASTLE ROCK, Colo. - A Colorado judge has denied bond for a woman accused of tossing her lifeless newborn onto her neighbor's back deck in January.
Camille Wasinger-Konrad, 23, reportedly gave birth on January 2 and then threw her newborn onto her neighbor's back deck where it was found dead around 14 hours later.
The neighbor who lives in the 500 block of Longfellow Lane in Highlands Ranch called the Douglas County Sheriff's Office, saying she was planning to get in her hot tub when she noticed her dog smelling what appeared to be a dead baby.
Investigators on the scene found a bloody shower curtain in a nearby trash can.
Wasinger-Konrad was arrested and charged with First Degree Murder-Victim under 12/Position of Trust and First Degree Murder-After Deliberation Tampering with Evidence.
KDVR says it learned during Tuesday's preliminary hearing that Wasinger-Konrad claimed to not know she was pregnant until the morning she gave birth.
She said she woke up with bad cramps that morning and "the baby just came out." Wasinger-Konrad explained that she put her hand over the baby’s mouth so no one would wake up to it crying. Then she walked to the backyard fence and tossed it over.
When speaking to detectives, she said “I just got rid of it,” referring to the baby.
A person who works at the local King Soopers with Wasinger-Konrad claims she had previously put a request in for a new schedule to her being pregnant.
