Woman arrested in fetal abduction case


MILWAUKEE (WAOW)--A 33-year-old woman is under arrest in connection with a fetal abduction case in Milwaukee. Investigators say she killed a 23-year-old pregnant woman and cut her nearly full term baby from her womb.

That baby died a short time later. Police only found out about the case because the suspect called 911 on Thursday saying she gave birth to a baby that was not breathing.

Investigators figured out something wasn't right with the supposed birth, and when they went to the suspect's home Friday, they say they found the real mother's body.

Neighbors say the suspect told them she was pregnant with what would have been her fourth child.
