The Court of Appeal in Rovaniemi on Friday sentenced a mother to 13 years’ imprisonment for killing five fetuses.
 
Earlier, the District Court of Oulu on June 15, 2015 awarded the mother Kaisa Emilia Vornanen-Karaduman life term imprisonment for the five murders and for five grave breaches of the peace.
 
The court said Vornanen-Karaduman became pregnant and gave birth with the intention of killing the infants.
 
According to the court, the 36-year-old woman planned the births, the murders and the hiding or disposal of the bodies so that no one would become aware of the births. She only revealed one pregnancy.
 
According to her psychological evaluation, the woman was aware of the consequences of her actions when she committed the deeds.
 
The woman gave birth to two boys and three girls alone at home in between 2005 and 2013. Af-ter the births, she moved the newborns into a variety of sealed containers.
 
According to the court, the woman’s actions of killing the babies were conscious and deliberate. The infants lived 1-4 days.
 
According to the district court, the infants were killed in a particularly brutal and cruel manner. 
 
The woman left the newborns without care or warmth. In the court’s view, the woman took spe-cial care to ensure the infants’ suffering.
 
These acts are also considered especially aggressive, because the woman murdered helpless and defenceless children entirely dependent upon her.
