Colorado Woman Cuts Fetus From Pregnant Woman’s Womb
A Colorado woman ripped the unborn fetus from a pregnant woman she lured to her home under the false pretense of selling used baby clothes.
A 34-year-old woman was arrested Wednesday after Longmont Police say she attacked a woman who was seven-months pregnant and cut the victim’s unborn baby girl from her womb. The baby died, but the victim is recovering in the hospital.
The ambush happened around 2 p.m. Wednesday at Dynel Catrece Lane’s home in the 1600 block of Green Place in Longmont. Satur said Lane and the 26-year-old victim did not know each other prior to this incident. The victim was responding to a Craigslist ad for baby clothes and came alone to the home.
Longmont Police Commander Jeff Satur said that Lane showed up at an area hospital with the deceased baby, claiming she had a miscarriage. Satur said Lane’s husband drove her to the emergency room, thinking the child was alive. He said the husband is not considered a suspect.
Police said the victim had been beaten and stabbed in the stomach before Lane allegedly removed the unborn child. Sources tell 9NEWS there is evidence of stabbing injuries from both a knife and pieces of glass.
Police have not determined a motive. Lane has two children of her own. It’s not clear if anyone other than Lane and the victim were in the home at the time of the attack.
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. She is expected to make her first appearance in court on Thursday. More charges could be added later.
So sad and disgusting. Hopefully this woman will be put UNDER the jail for what she did to this poor mother-to-be.
