Barbara Sampson, the newborn died from multiple blunt force injuries, which were consistent with being thrown from a window.
Police questioned the mother in the hospital.
Jennifer allegedly told the law enforcement officials on interrogation, that she gave birth to a stillborn baby in the shower, then threw the child out of her boyfriend’s bathroom window in The Bronx on Monday afternoon.
Local media report that the infant was found with its umbilical cord still attached after the horrific fall. 29-year old Kenneth Bolton explained, “The devil was in her eyes”.
Initially, Berry denied that she was pregnant but later claimed that she had given birth to a dead baby at her apartment.
The boyfriend told police that he was in another room when the baby was born and plunged from the window.
Administration for Children’s Services records from 2007 and 2008 indicate the Yonkers resident worked for the agency for six months but had “minimal contact” with families, according to local newspapers. That means that the newborn girl was alive, when Berry plummeted her from the window.
Jennifer Berry is walked out of a police station on homicide charges.
“I didn’t know (about the pregnancy)”, a rattled Johnson told The News by phone Tuesday, his voice cracking. I didn’t know any of this.
After having tossed out her newborn, Berry’s boyfriend, 28-yearold Giovanni Johnson, discovered Berry sitting in the shower next to a pool of blood. “The medical examiner has determined that the baby was alive”, Barker told the judge. Berry remained stonefaced as she walked out of the precinct house. Berry is ordered to stay in jail until her next court date on October 5.
