Walmart Baby Case Appealed

Friday, July 10, 2009 at 17:01



Crown prosecutors have decided to appeal the verdict in the April Halkett case.


Last month, the 22-year-old woman was found not guilty of abandoning her baby in a Walmart washroom in Prince Albert.


The judge said he believed Halkett’s testimony that she didn’t know she was carrying a child until she delivered the infant in the toilet.


Halkett told the court she thought the baby was dead and left because she was scared.


A date for the appeal hasn’t been announced.
