Eight days too late

AUBURN, Calif., Jan. 22 (UPI) -- A woman suspected of drowning her 8-day-old daughter was under suicide watch Tuesday in a California jail.

Kristina Fuelling was arrested after the baby's death on Sunday. She allegedly drowned the infant in a bathroom sink at her home in Granite Bay in the early morning and then told her husband what she had done, the Sacramento Bee reported.

Firefighters who rushed to the house were unable to revive the baby, named Faith Evelyn.

The mother was held in the Placer County Jail.
According to U.S. law, the only mistake Ms. Fuelling made was her decision to kill baby Faith Evelyn eight days too late. Had she done it on the 12th instead of the 20th, well, you would have been the one behind bars for trying to stop her.

Perhaps she assumed Peter Singer's 30 day trial policy was in effect?
