Response to Baxter Baby Trial Begins


An Attleboro mother charged with second-degree murder for starving her baby to death on the orders of her religious sect was acquitted yesterday of murder but convicted of assault and battery, a misdemeanor, which allowed her to walk out of Bristol Superior Court a free woman.
The verdict, reached after seven hours of deliberation over two days, infuriated Bristol District Attorney Paul F. Walsh Jr., who said that Karen E. Robidoux's actions could not be excused.

Robidoux, who was held for 35 months awaiting trial, much of that in Taunton State Hospital because she was deemed incompetent to stand trial, said she was happy that things "worked out."
