LONGMONT, Colo. — Michelle Wilkins, the pregnant woman who was stabbed and had her baby cut from her womb, has been released from the hospital, a family member told KDVR on Wednesday.

Wilkins, who was seven months pregnant, was responding to an ad on Craigslist for baby clothes on March 18 when Longmont police said the seller, Dynel Lane, attacked her, opened her womb and took the baby girl, leaving Wilkins bleeding in the basement.

Wilkins called 911 and was rescued by first responders. She had surgery at Longmont United Hospital and had been recovering for the past week. The baby did not survive.

Lane allegedly took the unborn fetus to Longmont United, saying she had miscarriage. She was later arrested on suspicion of attempted first-degree murder, first-degree assault and child abuse knowingly/recklessly resulting in death.
