Girl stabs her newborn 135 times
The StarTribune reports a 17-year-old Oakdale girl told police she gave birth on the laundry room floor early Monday, then panicked and stabbed the baby girl after seeing her move a finger. Investigators found the baby in a bloody garbage bag outside the teen's home with 135 stab wounds, most of the punctures were in the chest. The Ramsey County medical examiner's office said the baby was born alive and bled to death.
