The shocking accusations against Dynel Lane, who police say attacked a pregnant woman and “removed” the fetus from her body, have become the focus of a debate over laws that determine how pregnancy-related violent crimes are prosecuted. On Thursday night, about three dozen protesters convened in Longmont, Colo., to urge the state to charge Lane with murder. Police say Lane attacked 26-year-old Michelle Wilkins, who had come to Lane’s home in Longmont on Wednesday after responding to a Craigslist posting advertising baby clothes. Wilkins, seven-months pregnant, was stabbed several times before the 34-year-old Lane did something nearly unimaginable, cutting the fetus from her victim’s body, according to Longmont police.

Every hiccup. Every kick,” Zergarra told the Boulder Daily Camera. “It’s just sad to think that little baby girl was just kicking probably 15 minutes before her mom got to the door.” But the specific details of the horrific crime will make it harder for prosecutors to determine which charges are warranted, as Boulder County District Attorney Stanley Garnett told the news media Thursday.  [Pregnant Colorado woman stabbed, her baby ‘removed,’ after answering Craigslist ad] “The issue of whether or not murder charges are appropriate involving a case involving a death of a fetus or late-term pregnancy is always a difficult issue,” Garnett said. “Under Colorado law, essentially there is no … – Click Here To Visit Article Source
