          PLAYING Woman Attacked And Had Baby Cut From Womb Recalls Moment She Realized Her Baby Was Gone

          Woman Attacked And Had Baby Cut From Womb Recalls Moment She Realized Her Baby Was Gone


          August 26, 2016

          Michelle Wilkins was anxiously awaiting the arrival of her first child in March 2015, when she responded to a Craigslist posting advertising free maternity clothes. But when the mom-to-be went to the Longmont, CO home of Dynel Lane to pick up the items, she was brutally attacked by Lane. Wilkins says Lane threw her on a bed, tried to suffocate her with a pillow and then hit her over the head with a lava lamp. And then Lane did the unthinkable: she cut Wilkins’ stomach open and took the baby from her womb.

          Wilkins says she woke up long enough to call 911 and was rescued by paramedics.

          In the video above, the 26-year-old recalls being in the hospital and learning that her baby had died. And, Wilkins shares how she and her partner, Dan, were able to spend a few moments with their daughter as a family.

          After trial, the jury deliberated for close to seven hours before finding Dynel Lane guilty of attempted murder, unlawful termination of a pregnancy and assault. In April 2016, she was sentenced to 100 years in prison.
