• Seaside Woman Pleads No Contest in Newborn’s Death

    Monterey County District Attorney Dean D. Flippo announced that Jennifer Cecilia Warren, age 41, of Seaside, pled no contest to felony child abuse with great bodily injury and involuntary manslaughter and will receive a prison sentence of up to 11 years.

    In February of 2013, Jennifer Warren contacted Seaside Police Officers complaining of being harassed by neighbors. During her interview regarding her complaint, Warren told officers that in 2011 she gave birth to a child in her bathtub at home. She related that she didn’t want the child, so she left the child in the half-filled tub until the newborn stopped moving. She then wrapped the baby in a sweatshirt and placed the baby in a box underneath her home. Police were able to recover the baby’s remains two years later. A forensic pathologist determined that the infant was near or at full-term at the time of death.

    Warren will be sentenced on November 20, 2014 by the Honorable Carrie M. Panetta.
