Plea sought by woman charged with killing newborn son

OAKLAND, Md. — Court records indicate that a woman charged in Garrett County with murdering her newborn son is pursuing a plea deal.

A hearing is scheduled for Tuesday in Oakland for Jamie Lynn Hiemenz of Arnold.

Court documents show that the defense has sought to have her found not criminally responsible by reason of mental illness or defect.

Hiemenz was charged in March 2010 with second-degree murder after she showed up at Garrett County Memorial Hospital carrying an infant she said she had miscarried.
