According to a CNN report, a stranger stabbed a pregnant woman and cut her baby directly from her womb when the victim answered a Craigslist ad to buy baby clothes in Colorado, authorities said.
Police were called to a apartment in Longmont Colorado yesterday March 18th and on their arrival, they heard a woman inside screaming for help. An entry into the home revealed a 26-year-old woman with stab wounds in the stomach. She told them she had been 7 months pregnant, and was assaulted, stabbed and the fetus had been forcefully cut out of her womb.
Update: The woman has now been identified as Dynel Catrece Lane (pictured bove)
It gets interesting. The victim was then transported to Longmont United Hospital, where she had surgery and is expected to survive but the suspect implicated for the stabbing, a 34 year old woman, then arrived at the same hospital with the baby at the same time, and claimed she had miscarried. Sadly, the premature baby did not make it. Officers added one and two together and arrested the woman who is now facing charges of attempted murder and child abuse.
The names of the two women have not been released, but police said they did not know each other.
