A young lady in Minnesota, Nicole Marie Beecroft, has been charged with first-degree murder, which carries a maximum penalty of life in prison.

Nicole, who is apparently overweight, had managed to hide her pregnancy from her parents, but she couldn’t hide the baby girl she gave birth to in the laundry room of her home.

The Tartan High School senior told police she was in a “panic state” after giving birth to the girl on the floor of the laundry room in her home around 3 a.m. Monday, according to the criminal complaint filed in Washington County District Court. She told police she had seen the baby’s finger move, and admitted stabbing the child, the complaint said.An autopsy determined the infant had been born alive, but suffered numerous puncture wounds in the chest area and bled to death from 135 sharp-force injuries, the complaint said.

Hold your hand aloft and make a stabbing motion 135 times and see how long it takes you, even doing it rapid-fire. That’s some serious “panic” there, isn’t it? I’d think that a “panic” reaction would be to smother the baby and dispose of her body. Maybe even just wrap her up and shove her in the garbage. Stabbing her 135 times goes well beyond the grip of panic.

This young lady has some serious issues, and, like Jessica Coleman, she deserves much worse than she’ll probably wind up getting.

The really sad thing is Minnesota has a “safe harbor” law which would have allowed her to drop that baby off within 72 hours of birth with no legal consequences.
