Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...
A pregnant woman who went to a Colorado
home to buy baby clothes advertised on Craigslist was lured by a
stranger who posted the online ad and then stabbed her in the stomach
and took out her unborn child, police say.
Dynel Lane, 34, took the baby to the hospital, saying she had a miscarriage, authorities said. The baby did not survive.
The 26-year-old expectant mother, who was seven months pregnant, was
found beaten and stabbed at the suspect’s home, Longmont police Cmdr.
Jeff Satur said. She had undergone surgery, and on Thursday was alert
and answering questions, police said.
“This is a tragic case for a mother right now,” Satur told the Longmont Daily Times-Call newspaper ( http://bit.ly/1BzW1ZZ ). “She came by this house. She was attacked, and her baby was removed from her.”
Lane, a mother of two, and the pregnant woman, who was not identified,
did not know each other, investigators said. Police are looking for any
other mothers who may have responded to Lane’s ad for baby clothes.
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 told the newspaper. “In most circumstances, if a child was not
actually born alive, then homicide charges are not possible.”
