‘Suwon Refrigerator Infant Dead’ Mother Pregnant Again ’15 Weeks’… Lawyer reprimands husband for being irresponsible

The defendant, a mother in her 30s who was imprisoned on charges of killing her two children immediately after giving birth and storing their bodies in a refrigerator for several years, was found to be in the second trimester of pregnancy.

The defendant, who has three children, including a 12-year-old daughter, a 10-year-old son, and an 8-year-old daughter, was found to have committed a crime against the two children who were born later while experiencing financial difficulties, and she became pregnant again.

At the trial of Ms. A on charges of murder and concealment of the body held by Suwon District Court Criminal Division 12 (Presiding Judge Hwang In-seong) on ​​the 11th, the defense lawyer asked husband B, who appeared as a witness, “The defendant is currently 15 weeks pregnant. Do you know this?” Mr. B replied, “I heard it through an interview.”

Considering the extent of Ms. A’s pregnancy, it is presumed that she became pregnant before the crime was discovered by investigative agencies.

During the interrogation process that day, the defense lawyer criticized the husband for his indifference toward his wife, who repeatedly became pregnant and gave birth. He said, “After giving birth to three children by cesarean section, the defendant gave birth to the victim’s infant through a method that even the obstetrics and gynecology department discouraged. It is said that she chose this method because she did not want to inform her husband of the pregnancy and did not have consent,” he said. “Why would a person called the husband irresponsibly use contraception? “I’m angry that they didn’t even care,” he said.

Mr. B said, “If I had acted properly, my wife would not have committed the crime like that. I think I committed the crime by continuously causing invisible harm to my spouse. He said he feels responsible. Mr. A said that the defendant suffered from postpartum depression and was extremely agitated

. It is claimed that the crime was committed in this state.

However, the prosecution presented the contents of the KakaoTalk conversation the defendant had with her husband at the time of the crime and refuted that there was no evidence to suggest that the defendant was in a different mental state at the time of the crime.

When the prosecution asked Mr. B, “Did you not feel that something was strange while talking to the defendant (on the day of the crime)?”, Mr. B replied, “I didn’t know much because we didn’t talk directly.”

Mr. A’s side wanted to keep Mr. B’s witness interrogation private on this day for reasons such as privacy, but the court agreed to proceed with the trial as an open trial, saying, “The moment a state agency has already intervened in this case, it does not seem to be a matter of individuals.”

Mr. A was arrested and indicted on charges of killing two babies 바카라born in November 2018 and November 2019 and storing their bodies in a refrigerator in his apartment. In November 2018, Mr. A brought his fourth child and first victim, a daughter, home after giving birth at the hospital and strangled her to death. He also killed his fifth child and second victim, a son, near the hospital in November 2019 after giving birth there. Mr. A put the babies’ bodies in a black plastic bag and stored them in the refrigerator.

Mr. A’s crime was revealed when the Board of Audit and Inspection found that there were cases where there were birth records but not birth reports as a result of an audit of the health authorities, and notified the authorities of the results. Suwon City, which received the audit data, began an on-site investigation into Ms. A, but when Ms. A denied giving birth, it requested the police to investigate.

Mr. A’s side argues that the crime of infanticide, which carries a lighter statutory penalty, rather than murder, should be applied, saying, “The crime of infanticide should be determined based on the psychological state of the mother, not the time interval immediately after delivery.”

In addition, the position is that the defendant’s act of storing the infant’s body in the refrigerator at home (the first victim) without moving the location cannot be considered a charge of concealing the body.

Meanwhile, Article 251 (Infanticide) of the Criminal Act provides that if a lineal ascendant kills an infant during or immediately after delivery in order to conceal the humiliation, or because he or she is expected to be unable to raise the child, or due to particularly extenuating reasons, he or she is subject to imprisonment for up to 10 years. It is stipulated that.

On the other hand, Article 250 (Murder) of the Criminal Code stipulates that anyone who kills a person shall be punished by death, imprisonment for life, or imprisonment for more than 5 years. The statutory penalty is heavier than that of infanticide, which has a maximum penalty of up to 10 years in prison.
