Child protective services records requested by Wimmers' attorney
UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - The Deerfield woman accused of killing her infant daughter was in Oneida County Court Thursday.
LeeAnn Wimmers' attorney requested records from the Oneida County Department of Social Services - specifically, records from child protective services.
The judge ordered the records and said he would look them over and decide which are relevant to the case.
He should have those records within a week.
Authorities say the death of her daughter, Daniella Sapienza at their then-residence on Fineview Drive in Deerfield in April 2008 was ruled suspicious.
According to relatives, after the baby's death, Wimmers was not only thrown out of the house, but later confessed to the crime.
In June, Wimmers, who at that point was living in Asheville, North Carolina, waived her extradition rights. With that, Oneida County Sheriff's Deputies flew to Asheville to bring her back. That process took about 10 days, and she returned in July, where she appeared in Town of Floyd court, pregnant again.
She waived her felony hearing in Floyd Court and the case was then sent to an Oneida County Grand Jury for action.
