Ethiopian Mother accused of beating, strangling baby

SAN DIEGO -- A woman accused of beating and strangling her 7-month-old son, who was pronounced dead after apparently falling from a third-story apartment window in Normal Heights, pleaded not guilty Wednesday to charges of murder and assault on a child.

Zewoinesh Badasso, 33, was ordered held on $2 million bail. She faces 25 years to life in prison if convicted.

Deputy District Attorney Nicole Rooney said two passersby found the baby's lifeless body in the west alley of 4500 39th Street sometime after 5 p.m. Friday.

They called police, and the child was rushed to Rady Children's Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, the prosecutor said.

    That child was an unwanted product of rape....the poor thing. Every time she looked at him she was reminded of what happened to her.but even if that little boy was the product of rape. he did not deserve to die like this. lets pray for her she needs it and stop judging people!!!

    People who do this kind of act usually do it, because of being victim of rape,mistreatment or they trying to protect the baby from harm and they will harm the baby with out known the outcome.It's very important we get every information there is before we judge this women.

    Lets find out what happened first before we appoint ourselves judge and jury. RIP to the little baby and God help the mother. Her life is over no matter what the verdict. No one knows what went on except her and God. We should be supporting our fellow human being instead o tearing her down when she is at her lowest. Have you ever heard of Post Natal Depression? We should be praying for both souls

    Without knowing the truth and the conspiracy of foreign hand behind this incident please Abyssinians don’t rush to open your mouth for conclusion. Even if she really committed the crime she does represent nobody rather than herself. I read on San Diego Union Tribune and cbs news that, she was not at home when the incident was happened ,as well she was assigned to live at catholic charity with other people and she was a victim of rape. You fandiya habeshas we are hearing a lot in different news channel on regular basis that you are killing each other in American soil as used to be back home in your northern territory for example the recent incident in Dallas. You habeshas are running after opportunity to target and defame certain population while you are holding a big hole/ history of violent crime all over America in your community. From what I read about her story from the different channel I sensed there could be something orchestrated and timely calculated against this lady to harm the reputation of the society from which she originated. For all thing until evidence testify she is guilt, she remains innocent.
