Baby sold on internet in Chile for $100

An 18-year-old woman in Chile has sold her baby daughter over the internet to a man for $100.

Prosecutors have charged a man in Chile with buying a baby girl over the internet for $US102 ($A110), court documents show.

An indictment said the baby was handed over by her 18-year-old mother on November 6, 2013, two days after she was born, in return for the money and the cost of giving birth at a Santiago hospital.

The case came to the attention of authorities in January after the baby's biological father told authorities the infant had been kidnapped.

In the meantime, the alleged buyer, Juan Carlos Pacheco, had registered the baby in his name, and she was living with him and his partner "as if she were his own daughter," the indictment said.

Prosecutors are seeking two years in prison for the buyer of the baby, who goes on trial November 11 along with the baby's mother, Veronica Carrera.

Also charged as accomplices were the mother's grandmother and aunt.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
