Cops: Milwaukee Woman Killed Pregnant Woman for Baby

| by Mark Berman Opposing Views

Just an awful story out of Milwaukee, where a woman is under arrest for allegedly killing a pregnant woman and cutting the baby out of her. The baby also died.

ABC News reports that 33-year-old Annette Morales-Rodriguez, already a mother of three, was desperate to give her boyfriend a son, so police say she hunted for a pregnant woman.

When she finally found Maritza Ramirez-Cruz, 23, last week, police say she clubbed her with a baseball bat, strangled her and then used a knife to remove the baby.

Morales-Rodriguez is now charged with two counts of murder.
