The manical Mom was arrested after throwing her 3 week old son from a fourth floor Queens window and told the cops that an evil spirit had possessed her body.
Rashida Chowdhury from Queens, NY, 21 years old, is charged with the murder of her son, three-week-old Rizwan Ahmad, after authorities claim she threw him out of her Richmond Hill Apartment window to rid him of an evil spirit.
Chowdhury, wearing a blue t-shirt and a blank expression, was ordered held with bail and was placed on suicide watch.
A family member in the audience broke down as Chowdhury was led out of the courtroom.
According to cops, Chowdhury was arrested one day after her child was discovered in the trash-strewn courtyard below their 115th St. apartment.
According to Queens District Attorney Richard Brown “This a truly horrific and disturbing case of a mother accused of killing her helpless infant son. He fell more than 40 feet to the pavement and died. The alleged actions of the defendant are totally incomprehensible.”
Rizwan Ahmad, wearing his blue and white onesie, was found in a pool of his own blood. He died at the scene.
Ahmad had just been released from the hospital a day prior to his death — after recovering from a viral infection.
“This a truly horrific and disturbing case of a mother accused of killing her helpless infant son,” Queens District Attorney Richard Brown told the NY Daily News. “He fell more than 40 feet to the pavement and died. The alleged actions of the defendant are totally incomprehensible.”
According to medical examiner Ahmad died from “blunt impact of head and torso with skull fractures and lacerations of (the) liver, brain and spleen,” was found wearing a blue-and-white onesie in a pool of blood below Chowdhury’s apartment. A neighbor claimed they heard an “unusual” sound at 4 a.m. and upon inspection found the infant.
Chowdhury is charged with intentional murder and murder of a victim under the age of 11. If convicted, she faces life in prison. Held without bail and on suicide watch and she reportedly has two other children, age 2 and 8.
