A baby was found drowned.

The mother was tried for its murder but acquitted.

It was heard that she had heard voices telling her to go to her sisters. She said that she went out and then sat down near a pond and remembered nothing more.

She was later pulled from the water by a policeman that saw her hand and her child was found dead in the water sometime later.
