Catherine Olguin, a spokeswoman for the Boulder County District Attorney's Office, said Thursday night that prosecutors won't bring the charge in the baby's death. But she declined to say why or what charges 34-year-old Dynel Lane will face.
Investigators say 26-year-old Michelle Wilkins was attacked when she went to Lane's Longmont home in response to a Craigslist ad for baby clothes on March 18. Wilkins survived the attack.
