Murder trial date set for Oxnard woman

A murder trial date has been set for an Oxnard woman who left her newborn in a strawberry field.

The baby was found dead and investigators say it appears the mother had given birth between the rows of strawberries.

The discovery was made by other farmworkers at a farm in Nyeland Acres last May.

Unless a plea agreement is reached Rosalba Cruz Moran will be back in court for a jury trial September 10th.

The 20-year-old Mexican Citizen pleaded not guilty to all charges including using false documents.

Prosecutor Andrea Tischler said she hopes the case will serve as a reminder that California has a Safety Surrender Baby law. The law allows newborns to be dropped off at fire stations and hospitals within 72 hours, with no questions asked. Parents may also can 211 for assistance.
