Two doctors in Kazakhstan are facing murder charges after they allegedly allowed a newborn baby to freeze to death in a hospital morgue.
The baby boy was classified as “stillborn,” but hospital staff reportedly saw him move before he was placed in the morgue, the Daily Mail reports.
Authorities said they uncovered the horrific infanticide case while investigating Dr. Kuanysh Nysanbaev for bribery. Nysanbaev is a head physician at a regional perinatal hospital in Atyrau, Kazakhstan, according to the report.
Local Police Chief Shyngys Kabdula said they tapped Nysanbaev’s phone after he was accused of bribing officials to cover up medical mistakes. After listening to the phone records, Kabdula said they came to suspect the doctor of infanticide as well.
“After birth, the baby was negligently registered as stillborn, while in fact he was still alive,” Kabdula said.
