A mum left her baby to starve to death while she went partying for a week, police in Russia said.
Viktoria Kuznetsova faces 10 years in jail over the tragic death of her nine-month-old son Egor.
The 17-year-old, from Rostov in northern Russia, waited until her husband left for military service before abandoning the child, it is alleged.
She stayed in various student accommodation for a week before the alarm was raised.
Neighbours became concerned when they hadn’t seen either Kuznetsova or Egor and called police, news channel NTV said.
The child’s remains were found in the home.
According to reports, Kuznetsova had told friends the baby was with her aunt.
Kuznetsova has been arrested and faces up to 10 years in jail.
She reportedly confessed to police and said she had tried to give the child to an orphanage when he was a month old – but he was later returned.
