Dead Fraserburgh baby DNA 'match with accused'

DNA found on a bag containing a newborn boy's corpse in Fraserburgh was a match for the woman accused of killing him, a trial has heard.

Ineta Dzinguviene, 26, denies asphyxiating her son with clear plastic food wrapping on the day he was born.

Forensic scientist Esther Comb told the High Court in Livingston the chances of the DNA matching someone other than the accused were one in a billion.

Lithuanian national Ms Dzinguviene denies committing murder in April 2010.

The baby, later named Paulius Dzingus, was found in the Aberdeenshire fishing port's High Street.

The trial, before judge John Beckett QC, continues.
