PETALING JAYA: A former factory worker was sentenced to three years in jail by the Sessions Court here on Friday for causing the death of her day-old baby last month.
Judge Suraiya Mustafa Kamal handed down the sentence on Nenda Nurindahsari, 21, an Indonesian national, after she pleaded guilty to the charge.
She was charged with committing the offence at the premises of the Western Digital Factory in Sungai Way, Selangor, between 4.30pm and 5.02pm last June 15.
