The Trench Reynolds Report

All Crime Is Personal

Teen gets 13 years in Pompano Beach killing of newborn:

Ashley Truitt is the 19-year-old girl from Iowa who gave birth to a daughter in a Pompano Beach hotel room in June of 2007. She was there on vacation with her family and hid her pregnancy. Truitt didn’t just dump the baby though. She dropped minutes old Julianne Truitt 7-stories down the hotel trash chute where she died from the fall.

Truitt was originally facing a life sentence but in a plea deal the charges were reduced to aggravated manslaughter on a child from first degree murder charges. Truitt was just recently sentenced to 13 years behind bars.

The irony here is that Ashley Truitt’s biological mother gave her up for adoption. Rather than doing the same Truitt chose to kill her child. Or maybe in her mind she was just putting something useless out with the trash.

    I will never understand this kind of woman. At 19 a person is supposed to be responsible, trowing your baby as if she/he was garbage is just plain evil. Man how sad that the one supposed to be “nourish /loving” has 0 loving feelings towards an defenseless little angel.

    In a society where the unborn are regularly ripped out of their mothers’ wombs and thrown out with the trash, all this teen did was delay the act a few minutes too long. Sickening!

    there is no way , that the woman ashley could be human. dropping a newborn down the trash chute knowing the baby was alive.
    she was given 13 years? for the planned murder of a baby? she took an innocent life.just wonder if those in prison know what she has done.
