Mom silenced her crying baby by forcing something down her throat then leaves her to die

A woman who silenced her newborn baby by forcing something down her throat before leaving her to die has been found guilty of her murder.

Hannah Cobley left the child wrapped in plastic bags in an overgrown area at the Leicestershire farm where she lived with her parents.

The 29-year-old gave birth to the tragic tot in secret after keeping the pregnancy under wraps from her family for eight months, reports Leicestershire Live.

Cobley denied murdering the baby in the early hours of April 26 2017 after claiming she had not killed or even harmed the infant.


But the court heard how former grammar school pupil, of Stoney Stanton, Leics, silenced her crying baby by forcing something down her throat.

She then attacked the newborn, fracturing her skull in three places, before wrapping her in plastic bags and leaving her to die.

Tests revealed it took two hours for the tot to die in the undergrowth where she was dumped on Cobley’s parents’ farm.

Searches made on the killer's phone which were examined as part of the investigation included

“How long can a baby go without eating or drinking?”

“How long can a newborn go without eating after being born?”
