Woman cleared in fridge baby case

A 32-year-old German woman has been cleared of murdering her dead baby because it is unclear how the child died or if it was born dead, a court in Maastricht said on Tuesday.

The woman hid the baby in a freezer on the NATO base in Brunssum for two years. The body was found by cleaners.
