‘Suwon refrigerator infant body’ defendant’s mother is pregnant… Spouse Witness Interrogation

At the trial of Mr. A on charges of murder and concealment of the body held on the 11th by Suwon District Court Criminal Division 12 (Presiding Judge Hwang In-seong), the defense lawyer asked husband B, who appeared as a witness, “The defendant is currently 15 weeks pregnant. Do you know this fact?” Mr. B replied, “I heard it through an interview.”

Considering the extent of Ms. A’s pregnancy, it is presumed that she became pregnant before the crime was discovered by investigative agencies.

During the day’s interrogation, the defense lawyer reprimanded the husband’s indifference to his wife, who repeatedly became pregnant and gave birth.

He said, “After giving birth to three children by cesarean section, the defendant gave birth to the victim’s infant through a method that even the obstetrics and gynecology department discouraged. It is said that she chose this method because she did not want to inform her husband of the pregnancy and did not have consent,” he said. “Why would a person called the husband irresponsibly use contraception? “I’m angry that they didn’t even care,” he said.

Mr. B said, “If I had acted properly, my wife would not have committed the crime like that. I think I committed the crime by continuing to inflict invisible harm on my spouse. He said he feels responsible. Mr. A said that the defendant suffered from postpartum depression and was extremely agitated


However, the prosecution presented the content of the KakaoTalk conversation the defendant had with her husband at the time of the crime and refuted that there were no circumstances to suggest that the defendant was in a different state of mind than usual at the time of the crime .

The prosecution asked Mr. B, “Did you not feel anything strange메이저사이트 while talking with the defendant (on the day of the crime)?” and Mr. B replied, “I didn’t know much because I didn’t talk to him directly.” Mr. A’s side wanted Mr. B’s witness examination to be kept private for reasons such as privacy, but agreed to proceed with the trial as an open trial in accordance with the court’s judgment.

The court said, “The moment state agencies have already intervened in this case, it does not seem to be a problem for individuals.”

Person A was arrested and indicted on charges of murdering two babies born in November 2018 and November 2019 and storing their bodies in a refrigerator in his apartment.

It was investigated that she, who already has three children with her husband, Mr. B, including a 12-year-old daughter, a 10-year-old son, and an 8-year-old daughter, committed the same crime when she became pregnant again in a situation where she was experiencing financial difficulties.

Around November 2018, Mr. A brought his daughter, his fourth child and first murder victim, home after giving birth at the hospital and strangled her to death.

He then gave birth to his fifth child and second murder victim, a son, at the hospital in November 2019 and then died in the same manner in an alley near the hospital.

Mr. A stored the bodies of his babies in a black plastic bag and placed them in the refrigerator.

His crime was revealed in May of this year when the Board of Audit and Inspection discovered a case of a ‘shadow baby’ whose birth was not registered but had a birth record as a result of an audit of the Ministry of Health and Welfare.

Mr. A’s side argues that the crime of infanticide, which carries a lighter statutory penalty, rather than murder, should be applied, saying, “The crime of infanticide should be determined based on the psychological state of the mother, not the time interval immediately after delivery.”

In addition, the position is that the defendant’s act of storing the infant’s body in the refrigerator at home without moving the location (the first victim) cannot be considered a charge of hiding the body.
