Woman kills four-day-old baby by putting him in fridge

A woman in South Carolina has been accused of killing her four-day-old baby by putting him in a fridge.

 Emergency workers who arrived at the scene tried to revive the boy but was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital.

Angela Blackwell has been charged with homicide by child abuse.

Blackwell may spend her entire life in jail if convicted.

The 27-year-old mother put her newborn son in the fridge for three hours in February, before taking him out and seeking medical attention, the South Carolina law enforcement division agents said.

The baby died of hypothermia with asphyxiation from being placed in the cold, according to Chester County Coroner Terry Tinker.

Authorities have not said what they think may have led Blackwell to act as she did.

According to an online obituary for the child, Blackwell has another child.

A Facebook profile that appears to belong to her shows photos of her with a toddler and a newborn, posted the day after William’s birth.
