You think you've heard it all and then some crazy does something completely shocking.
Believe it or not, back in December 2004, a Kansas woman killed a Missouri pregnant woman, took her baby and tried to pass it off as her own. The mother of the child died. I can't imagine what that must have been like, knowing someone was ripping their baby out of them and not being able to do anything about it.
The killer had been spreading the word that she was pregnant and amazingly enough, the husband bought it. How can you be married to a person and think they're pregnant when they're not?!? This woman wasn't showing, obviously, but had a ready excuse about the baby being small, etc. People accepted the whole story (though her pastor admitted later he was suspicious). Geez, can people be any dumber? Needless to say, the woman was charged with kidnapping resulting in death. I hope they give her the chair.
So it was with great satisfaction that I came across this story. Before you know it, pregnant women will be carrying switchblades to defend their unborn children. What has this world come to??
Police: Pregnant woman kills attacker
FORT MITCHELL, Kentucky (AP) -- A nine-month pregnant woman fought off and killed a knife-wielding woman who may have been trying to steal the baby, police said Friday.
Police said 26-year-old Sarah Brady acted in self-defense in killing Katherine Smith on Thursday. No charges were filed.
Smith, 22, had been falsely telling neighbors for weeks that she was pregnant, and a search of her apartment after her death revealed a full baby nursery, investigators said.
"She had everything in place that you'd expect to have in place with a newborn coming," said Steve Hensley, police chief in this Cincinnati suburb.
Brady, 26, was treated for cuts at a hospital.
Police said that about a week ago, Smith called Brady, a stranger, and asked her to come over and pick up a mistakenly delivered package.
Brady picked up the package, the two spoke briefly and she left, according to police.
Thursday's attack occurred after Brady went to pick up a second package at Smith's apartment, police said.
In December, a Missouri woman was strangled and her baby was cut from her womb. The baby was later found alive, and a Kansas woman was charged with kidnapping resulting in death.
