A 29-year-old woman in Florida will spend at least a decade behind bars for killing her newborn baby, whose lifeless body was fished out of an Atlantic Ocean coastal inlet more than five years ago. 15th Judicial Circuit Court Judge Howard K. Coates Jr. on Wednesday ordered Arya Singh to serve 14 years in a state correctional institution in the death of her infant daughter, whom authorities dubbed “Baby June” because her body was discovered in June 2018, according to court records reviewed by Law&Crime.

Singh was arrested in December 2022 and charged with one count of first-degree premeditated murder for tossing Baby June — who was only days old at the time — into the Boynton Beach Inlet. She initially pleaded not guilty, but reached a deal with prosecutors in the state’s attorney’s office in which she agreed to plead guilty to lesser charges of aggravated manslaughter of a child and abuse of a dead human body.

Judge Coates sentenced Singh to 14 years on the manslaughter charge and 10 years on the abuse charge, with the sentences to be served concurrently, records show. He also credited her with 231 days of time already served.

The Office of State Attorney Dave Aronberg said that Wednesday’s sentence provided long overdue justice for Baby June.

“Ms. Singh went to a hotel room alone and gave birth to a child. As a result of her actions or inactions, the baby died. Ms. Singh never called 911, she never sought medical treatment, she never asked for help for her child, and she never dropped the baby off at a fire station,” the office said in an email to Law&Crime. “As the child’s mother, under the circumstances she placed herself in, she was the only person who could have saved that child’s life. Instead she disposed of her baby in the Boynton Inlet, in the hopes no one would know what she had done. There must be a consequence for that. And in this case, the consequence is 14 years of prison followed by 10 years of probation. Justice has been served with this sentence.”

As previously reported by Law&Crime, deputies with the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office on June 1, 2018, responded to a 911 call regarding a deceased female baby floating in the water off the shore of 3700 S Ocean Blvd. Detectives with the PBSO’s Special Victim’s Unit (SVU) and Crime Scene Unit (CSI) were dispatched to the scene along with the PBSO’s Marine Unit, which recovered the child’s body and brought her to shore.
