Woman Steals Fetus From Mother By Slashing Her Open
A jury has just convicted Dynel Lane, 35, of attempted first-degree murder, assault and unlawful termination of a pregnancy for her last year’s vicious assault on a pregnant woman.
Lane posted up an ad on Craigslist claiming to be selling maternity and newborn baby clothing. Lane had convinced her family and boyfriend that she was pregnant, but really wasn’t. When her boyfriend grew suspicious of the changing due dates, Lane took desperate measures to insure her lies wouldn’t come to light.
Michelle Wilkins, 27, answered the ad and went to Lane’s home to look at the clothing. That’s when Lane attacked Wilkins with a lava lamp, stabbed her in the throat, and choked her into unconsciousness.
She then slashed Wilkins’ stomach open and removed her fetus from her womb. The baby did not survive the attack.
Lane then rushed herself over to the hospital and claimed she had suffered a miscarriage. Her boyfriend was completely unaware of the treacherous woman’s lies. At the hospital, Lane refused to let medical staff examine her and she was later arrested.
