A former University student gave birth in a sorority house bathroom and then left the newborn to die in a campus trash can, has been sentenced to life in prison without parole.


Emile Weaver was found guilty in May of aggravated murder, abuse of a corpse and two counts of tampering with evidence, the Associated Press reported.

Other students who entered the bathroom after said it looked like a murder scene. Little did they know, it was.

She stuffed the baby girl into a plastic bag before placing the body in the garbage. Prosecutors said she died from asphyxiation.

“No more baby,” she texted the man she believed was the father, according.

DNA tests later proved that he was not the father.

Prosecutors argued that Weaver spent her pregnancy trying to get rid of the baby by drinking alcohol, smoking marijuana, taking labor-inducing supplements and playing sports including dodgeball.

“She wanted Addison dead,” Muskingum County Assistant Prosecutor Ron Welch said in court. “Whether it was during her pregnancy or after birth, it didn’t matter. She didn’t want the baby.”

Before her sentencing on Monday, June 27, the 21-year-old wept in court while reading a letter. “I stand before you a broken-down woman, asking for forgiveness and mercy,” Weaver said, per The Washington Post. “Words cannot express how sorry I am to my beautiful daughter, Addison.”

But Judge Mark Fleegle was unconvinced that she felt any true remorse and pointed out that the words “I” and “my” appeared a total of 20 times in her statement. “Once again, it’s all about you,” he told the defendant.

  • Very very sad ! The baby lived only a couple of hours but what a horrific couple of hours that were !! It’s a pity indeed that Emile Weaver didn’t seek and get help during her pregnancy. The life of her baby is lost, her own life is broken.


  • This is clearly a girl with many issues. So sad that no one was able to help her and subsequently the baby before all lives involved were ruined or finished. So so sad


  • If she didn’t want the baby, why didn’t she abort when she could? I don’t understand!!!

    • I feel the same way. Basically she abused her baby before she was born. She didn’t want the baby. Why didn’t she take Addison to a hospital where there was medical professionals and leave her. They would have heard the baby crying and looked for her. I’m certain the appropriate authorities would have found a loving home for Addison. I’m shocked she even gave her a name.


  • What a disgusting human being! It makes me so angry and sick that people like this breath the same air as people who are desperately trying to have a baby but can’t.


  • how terribly sad. its a shame that she did not get any professional help and advice.


  • I read about this last night. Such a horrid situation. She could have placed the baby up for adoption there’s so many people wanting to adopt.


  • RIP Addison. We need judges like that her to sentence these criminals appropriately


  • Lock her up and let other inmates deal with her.
    RIP precious little Addison.


  • A poor excuse of a human


  • This s appalling – I don’t understand why she didn’t seek an abortion.


  • OMG! I can’t believe someone could do that to their own child! She could have put the baby up for adoption! What a cruel human being! RIP little one


  • So very sad to hear especiallly when there are woman who would love to experience the joys of pregnancy and can’t.


  • How disturbed does someone have to be to do this?


  • why didn’t she just get an abortion then?


  • A life sentence in prison is what she deserves for killing her baby.
