A Houston judge has sentenced a 27-year-old woman to life in prison for strangling her newborn daughter minutes after giving birth to her at home.

Through a translator, Claudia Cortes asked state District Judge Michael McSpadden to forgive her and not give her a life sentence.

McSpadden said he could find no mitigating circumstances in Cortes' situation or her background.
