What this woman did to her own newborn child will make your blood boil. They need to lock her up and throw away the key forever…or worse.
A plea deal has been offered to the Pemberton Township woman accused of setting her newborn on fire and killing her, a judge in Burlington County said Thursday.
Judge Terrence Cook said Hyphernkemberly Dorvilier and her public defender, Karen Thek, still needed to review the offer, and scheduled another hearing for 9 a.m. Monday in Superior Court in Mount Holly.
Authorities said Dorvilier took a can of WD-40 lubricating spray and a lighter, and set her newborn daughter ablaze on a street in Pemberton Township on the evening of Jan. 16, 2015.
Dorvilier drove to Simontown Road, where she lit the fire, several hours after giving birth alone in the bathroom of her home a mile and a half away, authorities said.
The baby, whom family members later named Angelica, still had her umbilical cord attached at the time of the fire, prosecutors said. Neighbors who called 911 said they could hear the infant crying. She had third-degree burns on two-thirds of her body, authorities said.
