(Tampa Bay Tribune) Maria Macdelena Castillo told Brooksville Police that she didn’t know she was pregnant, but investigators say the 27-year-old woman understood right from wrong when she killed her newborn daughter in April.

Castillo, of 385 Union Street, was charged with manslaughter this week in the April 28 death of a baby girl who she gave birth to in the shower that day.

A medical examiner listed the baby’s cause of death as asphyxiation, hemorrhage and inattention at birth.
