Even veteran police officers were at a loss for words over the brutal crime saying “I have never seen anything like this."
Cops in Chicago say the baby’s father dropped little Vivian off with Alfreda Giedrocz before he went to work across the street with Alfreda’s husband.
The woman then placed the baby on a blanket on the floor and did the unthinkable.
"The defendant then hit the victim repeatedly in the head and body with the sledgehammer," a state attorney said.
The Chicago Tribune reports when the child was still alive she went even further, using a kitchen knife to slash Vivian’s throat.
Police are still trying to find a motive for the horrific crime and it hasn’t been easy.
Cops say Giedrocz is not easily able to understand the court actions because she is a naturalized citizen and needs a Polish translator to gap the language barrier.
