A grandmother who found her pregnant daughter dead, her womb slashed open and the baby gone, has been given the right to spend more time with the child by a Missouri judge. Under the four-page visitation plan the grandmother will be able to visit the child one full weekend each month, on various holidays and on extra days in the summer. However, she has been ordered to not discuss any of the events or circumstances concerning the death and demise of the child’s natural mother with the child. That decision is left up to the child’s father. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty against the woman who is accused of strangling the mother with a rope and using a kitchen knife to perform a crude Caesarean section.
