Woman charged with drowning newborn
by UPI

AUBURN, Calif. - A woman suspected of drowning her eight-day-old daughter was under suicide watch Tuesday in a California jail.

Kristina Fuelling was arrested after the baby's death on Sunday. She allegedly drowned the infant in a bathroom sink at her home in Granite Bay in the early morning and then told her husband what she had done, the Sacramento Bee reported.

Firefighters who rushed to the house were unable to revive the baby, named Faith Evelyn.

The mother was held in the Placer County Jail.

Nicholas Fuelling and his wife had been under a lot of financial pressure, the newspaper said. They went through two foreclosures in late 2006.

Relatives said that Kristina Fuelling had been a loving and anxious mother during Faith Evelyn's brief life. Both Kristina Fuelling's family and her husband's issued a joint statement Monday.

"Our hearts are aching," the statement read. "We find it unbelievable that this loving mother has been accused of such a horrible act. The charges against Kristina do not reflect the good person whom she is

known to be."
