A 31-year-old woman in Fulton, Mississippi has been charged with “depraved heart murder” in the death of her newborn son. Apparently “depraved heart murder” in Mississippi is when an act of “reckless disregard for the safety of others” results in death. Certainly a more poetic charge than “reckless homicide”.
“Every lead we had led us back to that house on Rich Drive where the child was found,” said Dickinson. “We still have a lot to investigate in this case, but we feel we have the right person in custody.”
The body of the infant boy was discovered Monday night by [Kristi Dawn] Sansone’s live-in boyfriend, according to Dickinson. It was found in a five-gallon bucket inside a 55-gallon drum sitting in the driveway near the entrance to the home. A woman who was at the home when the body was discovered notified authorities.
It’s unclear when the child was born or when it died. An autopsy report is expected to provide those details, but Dickinson believes the child was born sometime in March at the home.
