One 26-year-old woman was subjected to a horrendous attack after replying to an advert on Craigslist for baby clothes, and ending up at the home of a knife wielding maniac who tried to cut the baby out of her.
Tragically, the baby did not survive the attack and while the woman is now recovering in hospital, there is no doubt that the ordeal is not over for her with not only a court case imminent but the loss of her child also forever on her mind.
The 34-year-old offender tried to claim that the woman simply miscarried after the attack and due to the murky issues surrounding the death of a foetus in Colorado law, the trial is expected to be complicated meaning further trauma will be ahead for the victim.
The Boulder District Attorney claimed:
Issues involving an unborn child are complicated under Colorado law,” he said. “In most circumstances, if a child was not actually born alive, then homicide charges are not possible.
