SAN DIEGO (AP) — Trial has begun in San Diego for a woman accused of fatally strangling her infant son and leaving his body in an alley.

U-T San Diego reports 35-year-old Zewoinesh Badasso has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to charges of murder and assault on a child, causing death.

Her 7-month-old son, David, died at a hospital after he was found on the ground in the Normal Heights area in Sept. 2012.

During opening statements Monday, defense lawyer Amy McDonald told the jury that Badasso had been "devoted" to her son and was seeking help for anxiety and depression.

McDonald said Badasso had a "dissociative episode" at the time of the killing and recalled few details about what happened to the child.
