Heppner - A Mexican woman has been acquitted of a murder charge after her baby was found dead in a portable toilet near a field where she was working in Eastern Oregon.
The East Oregonian reported that doctors testified 22-year-old Araceli Velasquez-Espain did not realize she was pregnant or had given birth.
The doctors testified about a number of factors that contributed to her unawareness about the pregnancy, including her weight and unusually quick delivery.
An autopsy revealed the baby was alive when he was born last year.

Circuit Judge Jeffrey Wallace also acquitted Velasquez-Espain of all other charges in the case.
