This is an attack so savage you’d have to go to Israel’s Old Testament neighbors to find an equivalent.
But in a way, it’s even worse, since the attacker did this to her ‘friend’.
The victim, Angelikque Sutton was 22 years old, and eight months pregnant when she visited her childhood friend while on her way to marry the child’s father. Sutton never made it to her fiance.
Ashleigh Wade slashed her throat, stabbed her fifty times, cut open her uterus, and removed the baby girl who miraculously survived.
‘I’m so sorry and no words can express how sorry I am,’ Wade said through tears while sitting in the courtroom on Wednesday before her sentencing.
But Judge Margaret Clancy handed down the 40-year sentence despite Wade’s remorse.
She had been lying to people that she was pregnant and asserted that the girl -named Jenansis by relatives – was hers.

How she figured she could possibly get away with such a ridiculous plan is anybody’s guess.
For killing your ‘friend’?
In cold blood?
Stabbing her 50 times?
Are we sure that’s in line with the crime?
Think about how LONG it would take to stab someone fifty times.
This isn’t a ‘whoopsie’.
This isn’t a ‘momentary anger’.
After making fifty stab wounds, your arm is gonna be tired.
And then she sawed the baby out of the womb.
So she could what, pretend she’d been pregnant?
So she could pretend it was hers?
Forty years, after all that.
Does it seem too light to you?
Would this instance have been a good candidate for the death penalty?
(Well, that is, if New York still had such a thing.)
