MOMMY DEAREST TOSSED BABY INTO FIELD AND FLED: Elizabeth Newna fled when motorist witnessed her deadly act; Maryland State Police found her with another child and DUI

Elizabeth Newnam charged by Maryland State Police – left her baby to die along roadside

DENTON, MD.  – A Good Samaritan who believed a female motorist needed help found instead that the woman had tossed her baby along a roadside near Denton, Md., and fled with another child in her car before being located by a Maryland trooper and charged with DUI. Amazingly, a District Court let her loose on the world the same day – no jail, no psych ward.

 Maryland State Police arrested a Talbot County woman yesterday after she left an 18- month-old child along the roadside.

According to Maryland State Police Spokesman Sgt. DaVaughn Parker, the suspect is identified as Elizabeth Marie Newnam, 29, of 29416 Petunia Drive, Easton, Md.

  • one count of second-degree felony child abuse,
  • one count of neglect of a minor,
  • one count of reckless endangerment,
  • one count of second-degree assault,
  • one count of disorderly conduct
  • and Driving under the Influence.

Newman was arrested at the scene without incident and taken to the Maryland State Police Easton Barrack for processing. Newman was later transported to the Caroline County Detention Center where she was held without bond.


As this is the Alice In Wonderland Maryland Judiciary, Newman was ordered released on her own signature on a $20,000 bond instead of being held in jail or sent for a mental evaluation.

Caroline County EMS personnel and deputies from the Talbot County Sheriff’s Office responded and assisted at the scene. The Maryland Department of Social Services also assisted.

Newman’s encounters with law officers previously have been for several DWI arrests, speeding and failing to bother with obtaining a driver’s permit and driving while suspended. The Talbot County District Court Clerks Office, while often posting court charges with various typos, usually has her listed with the spelling of her last name as “Newman”, instead of “Newnam”. Some miscreants often use aliases in order to attempt to obfuscate the judicial system.
