CHICAGO  — A woman who dropped her newborn from a Chicago high-rise, has been sentenced to four years probation.

Uddin dropped the baby out of an eighth floor window of her family’s Uptown apartment after giving birth, she’d hidden the pregnancy from her parents, who she believed would not have approved.

She was given credit at her sentencing, for serving almost two years in jail.
