Normal Kentucky police say suspect 34 yr old Kathy Michelle Coy abducted, killed & cut baby out of pregnant 21 yr old Jamie Stice/Sentenced to life in prison

A Kentucky woman was arrested Thursday on charges of kidnapping and murdering a pregnant woman, police said, and tests were being conducted to determine whether she took the victim's child.
Authorities at Bowling Green Medical Center called police Wednesday about a "suspicious birth" after a woman identified as Kathy Michelle Coy, 33, arrived at the hospital with a newborn boy claiming it was hers, said Bowling Green Police spokesman Jonathan Biven.
In an ensuing investigation, detectives located the remains of 21-year-old Jamie Stice in a wooded area off a highway in Oakland, Kentucky.
Investigators are currently performing forensic testing to determine whether the baby is a genetic match to Stice, Biven added.
The baby remains at the medical center, where he will be for the next few weeks, he said.
"He's healthy, and that's a miracle, especially under the circumstances," James Reynolds, who CNN affiliate WBKO reported is the baby's father.
The baby was due to be born on May 24, Reynolds added, fueling speculation that the child was extracted early.
"She was robbed of her motherhood," Stice's cousin Carolyn Miracle said.
Miracle told CNN that the couple knew Coy, having met originally on Facebook and numerous times face to face.
According to Miracle, Coy had told the couple she was associated with a "Bibs" program that would help provide diapers and clothes for her newborn.
She said Coy had told people she was expecting a baby.
"From what I've gathered she'd told everybody she was pregnant -- her family, husband friends," Miracle said.
Coy is expected to be formally arraigned Tuesday. It was not immediately clear whether Coy had acquired legal counsel.

Kathy Michelle Coy wanted a baby of her own so badly that she would stop at nothing– including murdering a pregnant woman and cutting the fetus from her womb– in order to get one. According to CBS News, Coy lured 21-year-old Jamie Stice to a wooded area near Bowling Green, Kentucky under the false premise that the two woman were going shopping for baby supplies. But when Stice arrived, Coy used a stun gun to subdue her victim before slashing her throat and wrists with a drywall knife.

It gets worse. Coy then allegedly disemboweled Stice and cut her unborn baby from her womb. She then took the baby boy to the Medical Center at Bowling Green and claimed she’d just given birth. But Coy’s grasp of human anatomy was so poor that she failed to detach the uterus, ovaries, placenta and umbilical cord from the baby; it was immediately obvious that she had not given birth to the child. A doctor’s examination further confirmed this. Police were called out to the hospital and Coy was taken into custody.

At first, she claimed she’d bought the child. But a search of her home found links to two pregnant women on Facebook, one of whom was Jamie Stice. After further questioning, Coy led officers to the wooded area where Stice’s body had been left.

“We could have never found the body if Ms. Coy didn’t tell us where it was,” investigator Chad Winn told CBS.

Small comfort that is to Stice’s family.

The baby boy, named Isiah, is in “good condition,” according to James Reynolds, his father.

Warren County Commonwealth’s Attorney Chris Cohron says he may seek the death penalty in the case.

OMG, this is simply put: brutally horrific! I hope this monster gets the death penalty. They need to use a stun gun on her and cut out her female parts till she bleeds to death! Tit for tat. angry

Normal Coy sentenced to life in prison for killing pregnant Kentucky woman

Post by raine1953 on Sun May 19, 2013 2:43 am

BOWLING GREEN, KY (WAVE) - It was a gruesome Kentucky murder that made national headlines. Thursday, the woman who killed a young pregnant mother and ripped her baby boy right out of her womb, found out she will spend the rest of her life in prison.

Family members of 21-year-old Jamie Stice cried as her killer, Kathy Michelle Coy, was sentenced in Bowling Green. They said the legal end brings them some closure but, their grief and anger may never go away.

When police found the mutilated body of Jamie Stice last April, the pregnant mom was face down. She had been dumped in a wooded area off a dirt road and her baby boy was gone.

Kentucky State Police Detective Chad Winn remembered finding Stice's body, "Her throat was slit, her wrists were slit, she was disemboweled and the baby was obviously cut out of her."

Police would later find out that 34-year-old Kathy Coy, a woman who had her own children taken away from her, befriended Stice on Facebook, lured her out of her home to go shopping for baby supplies and then used a stun gun to subdue her.

After the murder, Coy showed up at the hospital saying she just had the baby. The umbilical cord was still attached.

Thursday, Warren Circuit Judge John Grise didn't hold back, saying while the word evil is tossed around too much, what Coy did was "Evil at work."

He told Coy, "In my 30 years of law, I've never seen a crime this horrendous."

By agreeing to a plea of guilty but mentally ill, Coy avoided the death penalty. She did not speak during sentencing.

Stice's Cousin Carolyn Miracle told WBKO Television, " If she can say I'm guilty to be able to live, she can at least say I'm sorry to the family."

Detective Winn told reporters outside the courtroom, "There's a certain amount of closure in this, but you don't get satisfaction in a case like this, it's the most horrific case I've ever worked."

The baby's grandmother wanted to address Coy before she was taken away. Kathleen Smith told Coy, " So many people will endure the suffering and violation you have caused for the rest of their lives, including your own family."

Jamie Stice's brother Eric told WBKO, "I'll never be satisfied, I'll just learn to cope."

In a statement, Coy's family sent their sympathies to Jamie Stice's loved ones. Stice's relatives say they plan to focus their energy now on caring for her son, 10-month-old Isaiah, who's amazingly happy and healthy.
