I’m going to pass this story on without further comment. From CWB Chicago:
A woman accused of throwing her newborn baby from an 8th-floor apartment window in Uptown has been sentenced to four years probation.
Mubashra Uddin had been charged with four counts of murder for allegedly killing the baby girl moments after giving birth in her family’s apartment.
But prosecutors last week agreed to drop three of those charges and then reduced the fourth murder count to involuntary manslaughter of a family member. Judge Carol M. Howard handed down a sentence of probation.
Friends rallied around Uddin from the moment of her arrest, blaming her actions on the young woman’s upbringing in a strict Muslim family.
