The 15-Year-Old Who Stabbed Her Baby

Aired on 11/03/2006 | CC tv-pg
Jessica Coleman was a cheerleader, a star athlete, an honor student, and only 15-years-old when she stabbed her newborn son in the chest. The next day, Tom, the baby's father, disposed of the child's body in a nearby quarry. For 6 years, police made it their mission to bring the person responsible for the crime to justice before arresting Jessica and Tom. In 2006, Jessica spoke to Oprah via satellite from the Lorain County Jail in Ohio, where she was serving a six-year sentence for the death of her baby boy.
