Bowman Woman Enters Plea to Killing Baby

Posted:

A Bowman woman pleads not guilty to killing her newborn baby.

 

43 year old Stephanie Lindstrom entered her plea to the AA felony murder charge in Bowman County Court this afternoon.

Authorities say they found the newborn baby in a toilet in Lindstrom's home July 23rd.

Lindstrom's family had called police and medical personnel to the house prior to the baby's body being discovered.

Police Chief Charles Headley says Lindstrom's boyfriend said Stephanie was sick for several days.

Chief Headly says Lindstrom looked very ill, was pale, and she reported vaginal bleeding. He says she never mentioned that she gave birth.

The State Medical examiner reported the baby girl was born alive and died of drowning.

Bowman Police Chief, Charles Headley says, "according to his findings there was air preset in the lungs including liquid as well in the lungs indicating to him it was a live birth. She indicated to me that she was not aware that she was pregnant."

Lindstrom's Attorney, Erica Jaehning says, "the testimony presented here today suggests that Ms Lindstrom and those around her had no idea she was pregnant. At no point was there testimony where she said she was aware she was pregnant. As far as the report of death. It does not indicate the manner of death, just the cause of death."

Lindstrom faces life in prison.
