Batavia mother had options to leave baby legally.

An upstate New York lady who prosecutors say lived together with her lifeless child woman’s physique for 3 months was charged Saturday with homicide. Police opened an investigation on Thursday after receiving a 911 call from someone who’d visited Colantonio’s Batavia, New York, apartment and found the baby’s body.

A New York state woman who stands accused of keeping the remains of her deceased infant in the residence in which she lived has been charged in connection to the baby’s death, according to reports.BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — There’s a hospital at the end of Christina Colantonio’s street, about a mile away; there’s a police station, even closer. Christina Colantonio, 28, was charged with second-degree homicide in reference to the dying of her daughter, Genesee County District Lawyer Lawrence Friedman stated. According to the AP, police said investigators believe the girl was killed about “shortly after birth,” about three months ago, and that they “have enough evidence to come to a conclusion it was intentionally caused.”

If the 28-year-old Batavia woman was considering what to do with her infant daughter shortly after she gave birth in a second-floor apartment on Liberty Street, she had options. Police launched an investigation Thursday when an acquaintance visiting Colantiono at her condominium in Batavia, about 45 miles from Buffalo, discovered the child’s lifeless physique and referred to as 911, Batavia Police Det. The baby, born in the suspect’s Liberty Street house, had been dead for three months when the body was found Thursday in the home, Batavia Police Detective Sgt. Colantonio could have taken advantage of New York’s safe haven law, which allows a person to drop off a child at a specified place, so long as the child is not older than 30 days, is free from injury and is left with a knowing adult. Buffalo expanded its safe haven zones in 2008, after a Lackawanna mother, Alicia Zebrun, was accused of placing a newborn girl in a shoebox, and leaving her in a trash bin on the city’s south side.
