Woman accused of cutting baby from pregnant woman’s womb


LONGMONT, Colo. (AP) — A 34-year-old woman was accused of stabbing a pregnant woman in the stomach and removing her baby, while the expectant mother visited her home to buy baby clothes advertised on Craigslist, Colorado authorities said.

Officers called to the residence Wednesday afternoon found the 26-year-old victim, who was seven months pregnant, stabbed and beaten, Longmont police Cmdr. Jeff Satur told the Daily Times-Call newspaper (http://bit.ly/1BzW1ZZ ).  

She underwent surgery and is expected to recover, but the baby did not survive. Satur said the suspect arrived at the hospital with the baby and told staff she had suffered a miscarriage. The pregnant woman was at the home to buy baby clothes that were advertised on Craigslist.

“This is a tragic case for a mother right now,” Satur said. “She came by this house. She was attacked, and her baby was removed from her.” Investigators have not released the names of the suspect and the pregnant woman but said they did not know each other.

The suspect was arrested at the hospital on suspicion of attempted first-degree murder, first-degree assault and child abuse-knowingly and recklessly resulting in death. Boulder County District Attorney Stan Garnett said his office will consider what formal charges to file.

“The issues involving an unborn child are complicated under Colorado law,” he said. “In most circumstances, if a child was not actually born alive, then homicide charges are not possible.” Police were getting a search warrant for the suspect’s home.

  1. wow.. there’s some sick stuff right there.

    Women will hate me for saying this, but I think they’re all slightly insane, and every man agrees with me when his wife isn’t around.

    I’ll never get married again unless there’s a HUGE dowry involved. It’s Dad’s way of saying “here’s a pile of gold for taking one of these lunatics out of my house”, and that sensible tradition has been reduced to the father of the bride paying for the wedding. That’s not nearly enough.

    1. Not all of us are crazy, but there are a bunch of crazy b!+€#es around. I don’t care to deal with them either. Gives us sane ones a bad name.

  2. An obvious nutcase who needs to be put away for a long time. The trauma the pregnant woman suffered must be near impossible to comprehend.

  3. WTF is in the water out there?

    actually what i ment to say was , this is right up there with the shit thats going to be hitting the fan as this country hits the shit greased skids they have planned for us .. if you think this act is outrageous ,, just wait .. you aint seen nothin yet

  4. Funny JR!-
    I don’t know how anyone doin such a thing could possibly think they could get away with it in the 1st place!?…If some of these psycho smart-dumb- mo-fo’s had just two brain cells in close proximity to even pass the most daintiest n’ faintest spark between em that they would terminally electrocute themselves with the merest thought?…..Might as well outlaw knives right?…..I say we start arming the babies!-Baby formula Ritalin just aint enough these days.
