Cheyenne Corbett will spend sixteen years behind bars for killing her newborn baby girl. A judge sentenced her this morning.

The sentence is part of a plea agreement in which prosecuters dropped first degree murder charges. Corbett gave birth to her healthy baby girl in July of 2006, wrapped the baby in a towel, and hid her in an entertainment system where she suffocated. She initially denied ever being preganant.

Today she told a courtroom full of emotional family and friends that if she has to go to prison to make sure this doesn’t happen to another child or family then she would take responsibility and serve her sentence.

    Maybe the boy didn't know she was pregnant. Even if he DID know, This girl murdered her daughter after she was born. Perhaps the boy was not present when she did this and would not have been able to stop her.

    Can someone tell me why the boy involved in this is not being charged with something? Why is it after the sperm they are not held accountable too?
