BROOKLYN - A Brooklyn mother was sentenced to five years in prison today for killing her newborn daughter in 2007.

Laura Sergio, 28, was convicted of manslaughter after police say they found her baby stuffed in a black garbage bag on the back porch of her Bay Ridge home. They say a second black garbage bag was filled with bloody rags.

During the trial, Sergio claimed she suffered amnesia and had no memory of the crime.

Her lawyers have filed an appeal, which is expected to be heard on Thursday. If the appeal is granted, Sergio could be released on bail.
