A ten-day-old baby girl died after being placed in a washing machine as it went through an entire spin cycle.

The newborn's mother Lyndsey Fiddler put her daughter into the washing machine along with a pile of laundry.

The tiny baby was inside the top loading washing machine for up to 40 minutes before being discovered.

A relative who called in to see Fiddler found her passed out and the baby, called Maggie May, missing.

She also heard a strange sound from the washing machine and when she opened the door found the crumpled body of Maggie mixed in with the clothes.

In a frantic call to emergency dispatchers 26-year-old Fiddler is heard saying :'My baby is dead.'

She can then be heard arguing with her aunt Rhonda Coshatt who is heard on the call saying: 'No I did not kill your baby, you did.'

The gruesome death in Bartlesville, Oklahoma left many of the emergency crews and police who responded to the incident in tears.

A veteran police chief, who has witnessed multiple murders and gangland shootings, said it was the most tragic crime scene he has ever investigated.

Police have charged Fiddler with second degree manslaughter after initially arresting her on drug charges.

They had been called to her flat on Thursday where they found the dead baby still inside the washing machine.
