CASTLE ROCK, Colo. (KDVR) -- A Highlands Ranch woman was sentenced to life in prison without the chance of parole Friday for the death of her newborn baby.

In August, Camille Wasinger-Konrad was found guilty of premeditated murder, murder by a person in position of trust and tampering with evidence.

Wasinger-Konrad admitted to smothering her newborn for three minutes before throwing the baby over an 8-foot fence around 6 a.m. Jan. 2, 2018. The neighbor’s dog found the baby around 9:48 p.m. that night.

A year and a half later, her defense attorneys insisted Wasinger-Konrad is guilty of lesser counts of tampering and child abuse resulting in death, not premeditated murder, because she functions like an immature child. Testimony revealed she wore a Disney princess gown to her high school prom, and her own grandparents wouldn’t leave her home alone for fear she might burn the house down.
