Accused baby killer wants trial moved

January 31. 2003

Decatur County - The South Georgia woman who's accused of putting her newborn in the deep freezer is expected to have another pre-trial hearing Tuesday. 

Forty-one-year old Melissa Ferguson was arrested after family members found the body of the full term baby girl wrapped in grocery bags in her deep freezer.

Investigators said the infant died of asphyxiation. Ferguson's attorney has asked for a change of venue because of the publicity.

The trial is scheduled for February 10th in Decatur County.
