BRUNSWICK COUNTY, Va. — The Virginia mother accused of killing her newborn twins while in school at St. Paul’s College 17 years ago will finally stand trial.
Darnesha Berry faces two charges of first-degree murder after authorities say she tossed the bodies of the two babies down a trash chute in 1998. Berry lived in the dorm where the babies were killed, but was not considered a suspect at the time of their deaths.
Investigators later found feminine hygiene products inside a trash can outside Berry’s Henrico home as evidence linking her to the crime, WTVR reports.
The case is expected to go before a jury Monday.
