A court in Tábor, in southern Bohemia, on Tuesday sentenced a woman to 15.5 years in prison for murdering her newborn baby. The woman gave birth last September in the apartment of her underage boyfriend; she told the court she thought the newborn was dead which is why she threw the baby out of the window. She later collapsed and was taken to hospital. Doctors said the baby died of injuries suffered as a result of the fall.
