Mother Charged with Murder for Allegedly Throwing Newborn from 7th Floor Window

Mother Charged with Murder for Allegedly Throwing Newborn from 7th Floor Window

The troubled mom accused of hurling her newborn daughter to her death from a Bronx building lost another child to tragedy seven years earlier, sources said Wednesday.


And now investigators are revisiting the death of another baby born to Jennifer Berry — this one a boy.

“We are going to be taking another look at the case,” said Lucian Chalfen, a spokesman for the Westchester County district attorney.

Berry, a former New York City child welfare worker, gave birth in March 2008 in Yonkers — where she still lives — and brought the 2-week-old boy to the hospital at least once before he was found dead in a bassinet at her home, sources said.

An autopsy done by the Westchester County medical examiner concluded the baby had died of SIDS, or sudden infant death syndrome, and ruled out foul play, the sources said.

While there are currently no plans to exhume the boy’s body and do another autopsy, a source said that could happen if they find some red flags while reviewing the file.

Westchester officials decided to take a second look at the case a day after Berry was charged by Bronx prosecutors with second-degree murder and manslaughter after an autopsy determined that her daughter’s death was a homicide.

A seemingly possessed Berry was marched out of the W. 183rd St. building in handcuffs on Monday after the baby’s broken body was found. The little innocent, who didn’t even have a name, still had her umbilical cord attached when Berry tossed her from a seventh-floor window, police said.

The baby’s father, 28-year-old Giovanni Johnson, lives in the apartment and told the Daily News he had no idea Berry was pregnant.

Berry, 33, told cops she delivered the eight-pound baby in the shower of Johnson’s apartment.

She claimed the baby was not breathing and also threw the placenta out the window.

Later it was determined that Berry worked for the Administration for Children’s Services for six months in 2007 and 2008.

Berry had “minimal contact with families” during her tenure there, sources said.
