Facing possible life sentence.

The former Ohio college student who killed her hours-old newborn texted “no more baby” to its presumptive father after she dumped the tiny body in a sorority house garbage can.
Emile Weaver was found guilty of murder Friday for the April 2015 killing on the campus of Muskingum University in Zanesville.

The 21-year-old, a member of her school’s Delta Gamma Theta chapter, gave birth to 6-pound, 10-ounce Addison Grace inside the sorority house bathroom on April 22, 2015.
After cleaning up the blood and placenta from the birth, Weaver put the newborn in a garbage bag and left her in a garbage can next to the on-campus house, where the little girl suffocated to death, prosecutors said.
That night, Weaver texted the man she believed was the father to inform him she was no longer expecting, prosecutors said in court Friday according to the Times Recorder.

“No more baby,” she wrote.
The supposed dad, also a student at the private university, then texted back “What” and “???”
“Taken care of,” she wrote. “Don’t worry about it”
“I would like to know how you killed my kid,” the man demanded.

The twisted sorority girl eventually texted the man that the baby died in labor because of “placenta complications”
Weaver testified Friday that she had been in denial about the pregnancy and thought the baby was already dead when she discarded the trash bag.
Prosecutors argued that Weaver never wanted little Addison: The mom-to-be drank alcohol, smoked pot and took labor-inducing supplements throughout her pregnancy hoping she’d have a miscarriage.
She took 80 pills of black cohosh — a supplement that comes in a bottle emblazoned with the warning, “Do not take if pregnant” — in the 16 days before she gave birth, prosecutors said.

Weaver was charged with murder, abuse of a corpse and two counts of tampering with evidence. She pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity, but a judge ruled that she was mentally competent. Weaver faces life in prison.
This is the second time a Muskingum University student dumped a living newborn in a campus trash can. The first student, Jennifer Bryant, claimed she thought her baby was a stillborn and discarded her in a blanket. She pleaded guilty to the killing in 2003 and was released six months into a three-year prison sentence.
