It is so sad that this thing happens to such helpless and innocent children. The only way for a baby to communicate is to cry. If someone can not deal with this, they should not have kids. There are so many couples out there who cant have children and they deserve the chance much more than people like her does. This is just my opinion. She will answer for what she has done. I just hope God shows her more mercy than she showed her baby. Rest in peace baby Cambria

Poor little baby, most likely she just wanted to be held and rocked.

Being a mom is the biggest blessing God can give someone. To hurt an innocent baby is the most heartless thing someone could do. If she couldn't deal with the crying there are Churches, Police Stations and hospitals that she could have taken the baby to. I for one would have loved to snuggle and love little Cambria. It is very hard for me not to hope that Ms. Hanna gets the death penalty. Cambria was a beautiful little girl. Rest in Peace little one - there will be more pain. God has you in his loving arms.

impossible. Women don't do these kind of things. It is a known fact. She must be protecting some man somewhere.

That's bullsh*it - women DO do these things.
How many women have we seen in the news that have thrown their kids off a bridge to die - or some other sick thing like that.

Where are you getting these "proven facts" from?

Fanclub I don't know where your from but we are living on Earth and this has been going on for a very long time centuries even so go down to your local library and look up murders of woman concerning children and you will see honey this is not cinderella land at disney land this is reality and it doesn't take a woman to protect anyone to do a crime like this it happens and it's sickening so I hope this has brighten up your horizon a tad bit! and my prayers go out to the father and the grand-parents because they must be devastated!

One thing the newspaper didn't get the story right. Number 2 all of you need to read about postpartum psychosis because this can happen to any of you. Your sister your wife your daughter. There is not enough information out there for people. This is not taught to you buy your dr. or your Lamaze teacher. Oh for got this is hickville WV they don't have Lamaze teachers for child birth. You are right about the grandparents. They lost their life. They had no idea. They didn't lose one they lost 2. And they are educated people. This was a child they had no problem out of growing up.

THAT DOES NOT EXCUSE HER WRONG DOING SHE IS SICK AND YOU MIGHT AS WELL FACE IT SHE IS GOING TO GET WHAT SHE DESERVES AND JUSTICE WILL BE HER DOWN FALL OF DISCOVERY BECAUSE NOW SHE KNOWS SHE WAS ABSOLUTELY OUT OF LINE FOR THAT ONE SO PEOPLE NEED TO STOP MAKING UP EXCUSES FOR PEOPLES MENTAL BEHAVIOR JUST LIKE SHE GAVE BIRTH IS JUST LIKE SHE KILLED HER BABY BY FORCE OF A WILLING MIND!

No excuse for this woman who so thoughtlessly took the life of a precious baby..illness or not. From what I read in another comment, she had a way out, the neighbors obviously wanted this baby. She could have called on them to take the baby for a while,or better yet let them adopt her. Hell has a special place for women like her. May God have mercy on her.. though she had none for her child. In closing.. I live in WV, and we do have Lamaze coaches etc., we wear shoes and have teeth as well. I dont guess there are any Hickvilles in KY? Just wondered.

First of all , I think it is a sad terrible thing that happened to that little baby , Second thing is ,there is no death penelty in WV anymore, so all of your tax dollars will keep that woman in prison for (hopefully) the rest of her life, and we ( as taxpayers) will have supported her at about 15 to 20k per year for the next say , oh 20 years , so we will have spent about 400,000 dollars on her , not counting the legal fees, court cost , court ordered psych visits, doctor appts. , dental care , education, and let us not forget she can contest the outcome of her trial, and be paroled in 10 years, got to love the Justice system.

I live very close to this family and Ms. Hanna did NOT have PPD. She is just a deranged individual who fooled us all into thinking she was capable of being a mother. May she get what she deserves. Not only for the death and pain to her child, but for the pain, humiliation, and grief to her family and friends who didn't have a clue Cambria needed help. She lied and covered up the abuse for months and was very well aware of what she was doing.

I agree with knowing. Ashley should be held fully accountable. There was a whole neighborhood of people who would have provided her with help, but she choose to do things her own way.
