BATAVIA, NY –A mother of two, has been charged with murder after she allegedly killed her baby and then lived with the baby’s dead body for three months.

Police arrested and charged Christina M. Colantonio, 28, with second-degree murder in the death of her infant daughter.

Authorities launched an investigation into the tot’s death after a friend of Colantiono called 911 after she discovered the baby’s body on Thursday.

Detectives determined that the child was born at home and said the body had been kept there for three months, but would not say how the child died, only that evidence shows it was “an intentional death.”

Police said Colantonio, who has two other children, lived alone in the apartment. They believe she killed the child “shortly after” giving birth to the girl in her apartment, about three months ago.

It was not immediately clear whether she had an attorney who could comment on her behalf.

Colantonio was arraigned in Batavia City Court on Saturday and is being held with no bail. She is scheduled to appear in court again on Monday.
