No murder charge in case of baby cut from woman answering Craigslist ad
DENVER (AP) — Prosecutors say a Colorado woman accused of luring an expectant mother to a basement and cutting the baby from her belly will not be charged with murder.
Catherine Olguin, a spokeswoman for the Boulder County District Attorney’s Office, said Thursday night that prosecutors won’t bring the charge in the baby’s death.
But she declined to say why or what charges 34-year-old Dynel Lane will face.
Colorado has twice rejected proposals to make the violent death of a fetus a homicide, refusing to join 38 other states and the federal government for fear such a law would be used to restrict abortions.
