Kentucky woman to be sentenced for killing expectant mother, removing baby from her body
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) ' A southern Kentucky woman who pleaded guilty but mentally ill to cutting a baby boy from his mother's womb then leaving the woman to die is scheduled for sentencing in Bowling Green.
Kathy Coy of Morgantown agreed to a sentence of life in prison last month when she admitted to using a stun gun, then attacking 21-year-old Jamie Stice last year in an effort to take her baby. Sentencing is set for 8:30 a.m. CST.
Police say Coy and Stice were Facebook friends. Stice's body was found off a dirt road in southern Kentucky on April 14, a day after she had been seen leaving her home with Coy. Police arrested Coy at a local hospital after she arrived with the infant but showed no signs of having given birth.
