Delay: Dzinguviene is trying to fight her extradition to Lithuania for questioning over another babys death.

A Lithuanian woman who was jailed for killing her baby in Fraserburgh is to fight extradtion to face charges in Lithuania concerning another baby’s death.

Ineta Dzinguviene, 26, was found guilty of killing her baby boy on the day he was born in Fraserburgh on April 12, 2010.

The baby who was later named Paulius Dzingus was suffocated with cling film before Dzinguviene hid his body in a bag behind a roll of carpet in the stairwell of her flat in Fraserburgh’s High Street.

She shared the property with her husband Arunas Dzingus, and her other children aged nine, five and three.

Dzinguviene was jailed for a minimum of 15 years at the High Court in Glasgow last June for the murder of baby Paulius. The jury of eight women and seven men, took a little over an hour to find her guilty.

It emerged last year that police from Lithuania believe she may have been involved in a similar case concerning a baby girl.

Lithuanian media have reported that in 2009 she went to doctors in her home town of Vilkaviskis and was told she was 28 weeks pregnant.

Dzinguviene gave birth to a baby girl in April 2009 in the town of Marijampole just 13 miles away and after a few days it was allegedly reported that no one saw her or the baby girl again.

Police would like to question Dzinguviene regarding the death of a newborn girl named Paulina Dzingute who was born in April 2009.

Dzinguviene appeared at Edinburgh Sheriff Court last Thursday at a hearing on whether she should be sent back to Lithuania to face questioning from Police.

However, proceedings were prostponed as her advocate needed more time preparing her defence.

The hearing is to be rescheduled for May 31.
