Baby killer Katrina Effert walks

Other cases of newborn deaths in Alberta:

• March 19, 2008 — Naomi Jessica Russell-Simpson, 21, left her newborn baby in a plastic bag under a bed in her Edmonton home. An autopsy later determined the baby had been born alive with no birth defects or obvious injuries. Russell-Simpson was handed an 18-month conditional sentence after pleading guilty to failing to obtain assistance in childbirth and concealing the body of a child.

• In 2000, Calgary’s Leanne Wise, 27, pleaded guilty to improperly disposing of a human body and was given 18 months. Wise was at home when it was reported she went to the washroom for a long time. When she emerged, people in the home noticed she had something wrapped in plastic under her housecoat. When questioned by her husband, Wise said she had passed a tumour. The medical examiner said the baby could have been stillborn, or he could have been born alive and “smothered with a towel or pillow.”

• In 1999, a family out for a drive discovered the badly decomposed remains of a baby boy in a ditch near Ponoka. The identity of the mother has never been discovered.

• Shelley Netter, 26, left her baby daughter in a garbage bag on her Edmonton doorstep. Originally charged with infanticide, but received a three-year suspended sentence in 1998 after pleading guilty to failing to provide the necessities of life.

• In 1998, Liza Santos strangled her seven-week-old baby at home in Calgary, thinking she was protecting him from demons. Charged with second-degree murder but found not criminally responsible due to mental disorder.

• Melanie Sheila Murphy, 21, left her baby daughter in a garbage bag at the college she was attending in Camrose. She was given a suspended sentence for infanticide in 1998 and ordered to perform 75 hours of community service.
