Dynel Lane, the woman accused of cutting an unborn baby girl from the womb of a pregnant woman in Longmont may not face murder charges.  The baby died, but the mother is expected to live.  

Speaking at a press conference Thursday, Boulder County District Attorney Stanley Garnett told reporters that unless a baby lives outside the mother's womb for "some time," murder charges are not possible.  

Lane is facing charges of attempted first-degree murder, first-degree assault and child abuse resulting in death.  Additionally, she could be charged with "unlawful termination of a pregnancy."

An autopsy on the baby is planned for Friday.

Police say Lane attacked the 26-year-old victim Wednesday afternoon after the victim responded to a Craigslist ad for baby clothes and came Lane's Longmont home alone.

Longmont police Cmdr. Jeff Satur said Lane later showed up at an area hospital with the deceased baby, claiming a miscarriage.

Satur said the suspect's husband drove her to the emergency room, thinking the child was alive. He said the husband is not considered a suspect.  

"We've made some requests of Craigslist to try to freeze that account," Satur said. "At this point, we don't want to give away too much, because we don't want it removed."

Police said the victim had been beaten and stabbed in the stomach before the suspect allegedly removed the unborn child. When officers arrived on scene at the Green Place home, they could hear the mother calling for help from inside the house. She was taken to the Longmont United Hospital and underwent surgery.

According to court documents, a doctor told police that the baby was viable.

Lane was from Kansas, but lived in Pueblo from 2002 to 2011.
