Mom who left her baby to die in a desert inside a stroller now met her fate

A woman from Arizona is paying for her cruel actions.


According to All That’s News, Ashley Denise Attson was sentenced to 20 years in prison for the murder of her 17-month-old daughter in September 2017.

When Attson’s daughter was born, she had methamphetamines in her system. She was then removed from her mother’s custody and placed in the custody of tribal services.

Two months after Attson got the custody of her daughter, she did something shocking. She put her daughter in a stroller and left her out in the desert.

The little girl was without food or water for four days and four nights where temperatures can reach around 90 degrees at the time.

The baby died of exposure while the 23-year-old mother returned to retrieve her body and bury her in an animal hole.

A statement from the prosecutor revealed that the mother then met friends for ice cream and posted pictures of herself on Facebook over the next few days.


Details of how the baby’s body was found and Attson’s motive have not been released.

Cosme Lopez, the U.S. attorney’s spokesman, said that he could not present further information about the death of the little girl, who was referred to in court as ‘Jane Doe.’

The judge took a stern view of the crime calling it, “intentional, cold-hearted, horrendous killing of an innocent child.”

Attson, a Native American of the Navajo Nation, pleaded guilty and agreed to the prison sentence of 20 years. She will then spend five years on supervised release after her sentence.

If the woman was convicted of first-degree murder, she could have carried a life sentence, according to All That’s News.

The 20-year sentence that the woman received was at the high end of the range. However, some people commented that she got off easy considering the pain, suffering, and fear that her daughter might have experienced.

The temperatures increase drastically in September and dying of exposure is a slow and agonizing death. The body slowly shuts down over a period of hours, or days.
