[Infanticide] One night, Anna's desperation reached its peak when her baby didn't stop crying and, thereby, prevented her from sleeping. At first, she tried to calm down her baby, but quickly lost her self-control and began screaming at her child. When the infant still didn't stop crying, she smothered her child with a pillow in a fit of rage. After coming back to her senses, Anna realized what she had done and became worried about the consequences. Eventually, she put her baby's corpse next to her sleeping husband. When Matthew woke up and realized that his baby was dead, Anna insinuated that Matthew had smothered their child by turning over the baby while he was asleep.
