    It just gets weirder and weirder

    https://www.yahoo.com/celebrity/colo...021833991.html

    This is the trial of the Colorado woman who posted a Craigslist ad for free baby stuff, then attacked the pregnant woman who answered the ad, cutting the baby out. Unbelievably, the woman lived to testify, the baby/fetus/whatever you prefer did not survive.

    Apparently the defendant has testified in her own defense and claimed that, inexplicably, the victim attacked her, she defended herself by choking the victim, and when she became concerned that she might have killed her, cut the baby out in an attempt to save the child.

    I haven't seen the testimony, but that sounds like a hell of a lot of bullshit for one courtroom. Wish I could have seen the cross. She called no other witnesses for the defense.

    This case was so highly publicized here. I think the woman had told her husband she had a miscarriage and that it was his baby that passed. The mother went to her house responding to a craigslist ad for baby items... So sad

    That was the only defense? Was she acting as her own counsel? I can't imagine a jury buying that, especially with the bullshit story about the miscarriage.

    What a sad story.

    I just reread, she didn't take the stand, they played a tape of her interview with detectives after the incident. Essentially they're playing it as her confession even though she doesn't accept culpability.

    Jury didn't buy it. They found her guilty of attempted murder, assault, and unlawfully terminating a pregnancy.

    The seven month fetus never took a breath outside the womb, so they couldn't charge her with murder.
