Pregnant Woman’s Baby Cut From Womb in Longmont
A 34-year-old woman was arrested Wednesday (March 18) after Longmont, Colo. police say she stabbed a seven-month pregnant woman and removed her fetus from the womb.
A 26-year-old woman answered an ad on Craigslist for baby clothes, but when she arrived at the Longmont, Colo. home, she was attached by 34-year-old Dynel Catrece Lane, who allegedly cut the unborn child from the women's womb.
The baby died, but the victim is expected to survive.
Authorities state that Lane showed up at an area hospital -- the same hospital the victim was taken to -- with the deceased baby, claiming a miscarriage.
The attack happened around 2 p.m. Wednesday, March 18, at the suspect’s home in the 1600 block of Green Place in Longmont.
According to the police, the victim had been beaten and stabbed in the stomach before the suspect allegedly removed the unborn child.
Lane was booked into the Boulder County Jail and is facing charges of attempted first-degree murder, first-degree assault and child abuse resulting in death.
