FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - A woman serving probation for killing her newborn has been released from jail after another arrest in an insurance scam.

Aimee Lee Weiss claimed she delivered a stillborn baby alone in 2001, then threw him in a canal. She was 17 at the time.

Weiss pleaded no contest to manslaughter in 2006 and received three years probation.

She was arrested again Dec. 20 and charged with insurance fraud and probation violation.

The Broward County jail says Weiss was released early Thursday on $6,000 bail. Her attorney, Robert Barrar, says she was merely a receptionist at a chiropractor's office targeted in the insurance sting and did nothing wrong.
