Jury Deliberating In Longmont Unborn Baby Attack

February 22, 2016

Jurors are considering the fate of a Colorado woman who cut an unborn baby from another woman's womb, a case which reignited the debate over the legal rights of fetuses.

They began deliberating Monday after the defense argued that Dynel Lane should be acquitted of attempted murder in last March's attack. Defense attorney Kate Herold told jurors that it was impulsive and reckless and Lane would have had a weapon rather than just grabbing things that were accessible if she had planned the attack.
