Pa. woman to face death penalty in baby death

EASTON, Pa. - November 27, 2013

Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli said Wednesday that 27-year-old Amanda Hein of Allentown deserves to be executed because she killed a child.

A cleaning crew found the baby's body in the toilet on Aug. 19 at Starters Pub in Bethlehem, about 30 miles north of Philadelphia. A coroner concluded the boy was born alive.

Hein is charged with criminal homicide.

Her public defender, Michael Corriere, said he expected that prosecutors would seek the death penalty. He didn't comment further.
