reuters.com A Colorado woman admitted that she cut an unborn child out of the womb of a stranger, and her husband told police he heard the fetus emit a "gasping breath" before it died, court documents showed on Friday. Dynel Catrece Lane, 34, is being held on a $2 million bond on suspicion of attempted first-degree murder, assault and child abuse resulting in death in the attack on Michelle Wilkins, who was seven months pregnant. The victim placed a 911 emergency call on Wednesday from a home in Longmont, 30 miles (56 km) north of Denver, to report being "cut" by a woman after she went there hoping to buy baby clothes she saw advertised on Craigslist, police said. At the home, officers found the 26-year-old Wilkins beaten, suffering from abdominal stab wounds, and slipping in and out of consciousness. She told them her attacker had "removed" her baby. Wilkins is in critical but stable condition after surgery at a local hospital, her family said in a statement. to read more: reuters.com
