YEKATERINBURG, November 13, 11:28 /ITAR-TASS/. Sverdlovsk region's Verkhnyaya Pyshma district court met behind closed doors on Wednesday to review a criminal case against a resident of the town of Sredneuralsk who had put her two newborns in a department store freezer, Lutsia Byzova, an aide to the court's chairperson, told Itar-Tass.
"The injured parties are the guardianship and custodianship agency of the town of Verkhnyaya Pyshma," Byzova said.
Personnel of the Tsentralny department store found the infants' bodies during an inspection on May 14. Their mother was found on May 16. One body had been kept in the freezer for five years, and another for three. The woman was charged with first degree murder.
"The woman claims she had a psychotrauma after giving birth and that she was not aware of her actions. She denied filicide charges," Alexander Shulga, senior aide to the head of the regional department of the Investigative Committee, told Itar-Tass.
If found guilty, she faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in a tight security prison. "The woman has been found sane," Shulga added.
