Batavia Mother Charged in Infant’s Death.

BATAVIA, N.Y. Authorities would not say how the baby died, but Friedman said investigators “have enough evidence to come to a conclusion it was intentionally caused”. Police launched an investigation Thursday after an acquaintance visiting Christina Colantonio’s apartment in Batavia, about 45 miles from Buffalo, found the baby’s body and called 911, Batavia police said.

Those neighbors described her as a “quiet girl,” “a nice girl,” and not the kind of girl to get into trouble. “It’s horrible,” Jennifer Hageman, a neighbor of Colantonio’s, told the Daily News. “Considering the street is so quiet, that you would never think that it would happen here. Bert Jan Lindeman won Friday’s seventh stage of Spain’s Vuelta at La Alpujarra summit during a first stage in the mountains which proved gruelling for Chris Froome.

The Dutch LottoNL-Jumbo rider reached the finale at the Alto de Capileira with breakaway companions Ilia Koshevoy (Lampre-Merida) and Jerome Cousin (Europcar). Police officers responded to the call and arrived at the residence at approximately 11:30 p.m. after being told there was a “suspicious condition” on the premises. “Batavia police detectives were able to determine that [the baby] was born at home and that [Colantonio] kept the deceased infant there for a prolonged period of time,” said Detective Sgt. Froome’s title rivals – Fabio Aru (Astana), Nairo Quintana, Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) and Joaquim Rodriguez (Katusha) – all profitted from his difficulties. Cousin had led a group of five riders up the final ascent after breaking away from the pack, but within sight of the finish line his back wheel touched Ilia Koshevoy’s front tire and he lost his balance. Police officers were so horrified by the condition of the baby that it has been reported by ABC News that the officers that found her were offered counseling.

Aru finished 29 seconds behind Lindeman while the group of favourites, featuring overall leader Esteban Chaves of Colombia (Orica-GreenEdge), crossed the line 36 seconds off the pace. “Today finished with 20 kilometres of climb”, said the ongoing race leader Chaves, acknowledging that he had passed a big test. “The team is unbelievable, they stayed with me all the stage”. I’m very happy, each extra day in the red jersey is an important day. “I think tonight he’ll [Froome] be a bit grumpy and it’s only normal but he knows how to ride and he knows himself very well”. “I wasn’t great on the shorter climbs but now I’m recovering and that’s good”. Mark Cavendish is contracted to Etixx-QuickStep until the end of 2015, but there is no news on whether the 26-time Tour de France stage victor will be staying, suggesting that a departure is likely. Tomorrow’s 182.5km stage from Puebla de Don Fadrique to Murcia should offer some brief respite from the climbs ahead of four mountain stages next week.
