TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) - A western Indiana woman is pleading guilty to charges that she stabbed a couple while trying to kidnap their month-old son nearly two years ago.
Thirty-six-year-old Stephanie Foster of Terre Haute pleaded guilty Monday to armed robbery resulting in serious bodily injury for the June 2010 attack. Foster faces up to 30 years in prison if the Vigo County judge accept her plea agreement with prosecutors.
The Tribune-Star reports ( http://bit.ly/JWQDH1 ) Foster's attorney told the judge he plans to present witnesses in Foster's defense during the June 15 sentencing hearing.
Police say Foster faked pregnancy after suffering a miscarriage and plotted for several months to steal a baby, even preparing false birth certificates and gathering baby clothes.
The child wasn't harmed in the attack in the couple's Prairie Creek home.
