Mother of drowned baby granted bail
The 17-year-old mother of the baby who drowned in a bath in Cospicua last month has been granted bail against a personal guarantee of €20,000.
The woman, who is pleading not guilty to involuntary homicide, will be living with her aunt in Kirkop. She cannot leave home before 8 a.m. and has to be indoors by 11 p.m.
The court also ruled that there are enough reasons for her indictment.
In a sitting last week the court banned publication of names and initially had refused bail. The woman had been kept in the Forensics Unit of Mt Carmel Hospital.
The case is being heard behind closed doors.
