Young mum jailed for life after throwing newborn baby in garbage

A young US woman has been sentenced to life behind bars after being found guilty of murdering her newborn baby.

The 21-year-old allegedly killed the infant by placing it in a plastic bag and throwing it in the garbage, not long after giving birth at her sorority house in Ohio last year, New York Daily News reports.

Last month, the former student was found guilty of aggravated murder, abuse of a corpse and tampering with evidence.
