CHICAGO — A Chicago woman who dropped her infant daughter to her death from an eighth-floor window was sentenced to four years of probation on Tuesday.

Mubashra Uddin, 20, was charged with first-degree murder in 2015 but pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter on Thursday, the Cook County state’s attorney’s office told the Chicago Sun-Times.

The Sun-Times reports the judge sentenced Uddin to 48 months of probation and fined her $579. She was given credit for serving nearly two years in the Cook County Jail.

Uddin dropped the infant from an eighth-floor window shortly after giving birth in November 2015. She had hidden the pregnancy from her family because she thought they wouldn’t approve.

The baby girl was found naked, bloody and still alive by a neighbor, who wrapped her in a shirt and blankets and called paramedics.

The girl died about 90 minutes later, the Cook County medical examiner’s office told the Sun-Times.
