Baby bashed to death

By AP

BUFFALO, N.Y.—Horrified motorists sprang from their cars yesterday to stop a woman who was repeatedly slamming her seven-month-old daughter onto a concrete sidewalk, Buffalo police said. The baby later died of massive head trauma.

Kirsten Vanderlinde, 36, who was a psychiatric outpatient, was charged with second-degree murder in the death of Melissa Vanderlinde-Berst.

Police checked on Vanderlinde twice shortly before the attack. A neighbour said she called a crisis-intervention centre two days earlier, after Vanderlinde, fearing she was a bad mother, asked her to take custody of the child.

But the neighbour, Millicent Turrentine, said she never thought Vanderlinde would hurt Melissa

Witnesses said a woman wearing a nightgown and slippers was holding the baby by her ankles yesterday morning and chanting: “Where’s my TV? Where’s my phone?”

“Where’s my peace? Where’s my nice home? Where’s my justice?”

“She was viciously swinging the baby and smashing the baby into the ground,” police Capt. Mark Morgan said.

A man ran to the woman and wrestled the baby from her arms. Police arrived and tackled Vanderlinde.
