Nicole C. DeJaynes appeared in Onondaga County Court on Wednesday, Jan. 11. She stood before Judge Anthony Aloi who presented the defendant with a plea deal that would have allowed her to forgo a jury trial on charges of second-degree murder. DeJaynes, 30, was indicted on Nov. 17 in connection with the death of her newborn daughter who was found in a Liverpool trash bin last January. An Onondaga County Grand Jury also charged DeJaynes with two counts of first-degree manslaughter.
