Charlotte woman sentenced in newbornís death

CHARLOTTE (AP) ó A 22-year-old Charlotte woman has been sentenced to more than seven years in prison in the death of her newborn baby girl last year.
The Charlotte Observer reported that Esther Flores was sentenced Thursday to at least seven years, 10 months in prison after pleading guilty to second-degree murder.
Mecklenburg Assistant District Attorney Clayton Jones says the baby died from a puncture wound to the neck. Jones says the baby died within an hour of being born in May 2007.
Authorities say paramedics had taken Flores to the hospital after being called to help a woman who was bleeding. Officials say neither the caller nor the woman said anything about a birth.
Paramedics and police who returned to the home found the baby in two white plastic grocery bags in a bathroom.
