Womb Ripper Gets Life

"Womb raider' who killed heavily pregnant woman and cut out her unborn baby is jailed for life."

An Oregon woman who murdered a pregnant woman and cut her unborn child from her womb has been sentenced to life in prison.

Korena Roberts, 27, battered eight months pregnant -Heather Snively with a collapsible police baton after luring her to her home.

She then used a sharp instrument to cut the unborn baby from Miss Snively's abdomen.

An autopsy showed that the baby boy, who did not survive, had been torn from Miss Snively's womb.

Her body was found stuffed into the crawlspace in the kitchen of Roberts' home in Portland, Oregon, in June 2009.

Police were alerted to the murder after paramedics were called to the home and discovered Roberts' boyfriend Yan Shubin desperately trying to revive a newborn baby and large amounts of blood on the floor.
