JUSTICE: Woman Who Cut Baby Out of Mother’s Womb Sentenced to 100 YEARS in Jail

Screen Shot 2016-04-29 at 6.40.11 PMThis is wonderful news! How many of you think this woman deserves the death penalty though?

A judge on Friday sentenced a Colorado woman to 100 years in prison for cutting a nearly 8-month-old fetus from a stranger’s womb.

A jury convicted Dynel Lane, 36, in February of attempting to kill Michelle Wilkins in 2015. Lane also was convicted of assault and unlawful termination of a pregnancy after luring Wilkins with an ad for maternity clothes.

Prosecutors said they were unable to charge Lane with murdering the unborn girl because a coroner found no evidence that the fetus lived outside the womb. That led Colorado Republicans to introduce legislation that would have allowed a murder charge. Democrats rejected the measure, the third time such a proposal failed in Colorado. Over the objection of abortion-rights supporters, 38 states have made a fetus’s killing a homicide.

Lane concocted elaborate lies to convince those close to her that she was pregnant, prosecutor said. She had posted online photos of herself with a distended belly and sent the man she said was the father of her child ultrasound images downloaded from the Internet.
