CONWAY, S.C. (WMBF) – The North Myrtle Beach woman convicted of killing her two newborns and throwing them in the trash will learn her fate next week.

Earlier this month, Dayvault was convicted on two counts of homicide by child abuse.

The defendant was a no-show in court during her trial, which means the sentence was sealed until she appears.

Dayvault turned herself in after a bench warrant was issued for her arrest.
