A MIGRANT who killed her own baby which prosecutors say was conceived when she was raped on her way to Germany has been jailed for three years.

The 23-year-old mother from Eritrea, only identified as Rozina G., was found guilty yesterday by a court in the German city of Kiel on charges of manslaughter by omission.

Her newborn baby was found dead in a rubbish bin by two municipality workers at a bus stop in the town of Sülfeld in the district Segeberg.

State prosecutor Bernd Winterfeldt told the court on Monday that the mother did not help her child immediately after the birth “in a phase where a life cannot be more vulnerable”.

According to the indictment, the baby died between October 10-13, 2015.

A medical expert stated in court that the infant was born in a healthy condition.

Rozina G. however chose to put the baby in a shopping bag and left it by the side of the road, the court heard.

The baby died 30 minutes after birth due to hypothermia and respiratory arrest.

Bizarrely, another woman who did not notice what the bag contained took it up and threw it away in the rubbish bin of a nearby bus stop – where it was later discovered.

Rozina G. travelled from her home country in the Horn of Africa to Libya from where she hoped to reach Europe by crossing the Mediterranean.

According to Winterfeldt, she was however abducted and raped by multiple men in a refugee camp, resulting in an unwanted pregnancy.

Winterfeldt said that it still does not explain why the woman chose for her baby to die and did not give it up for adoption.

In court, the Eritrean woman was seen repeatedly being comforted by her lawyer.

The death of the baby caused a huge shock in the small north German town.

The little girl was posthumously baptised by the church and given the name of Teresa, with dozens of shocked residents attending the funeral.
