This undated photo released by a family member shows Darlene Haynes, 23, who was found dead in her Worcester, Mass., apartment Monday, July 27, 2009, with her fetus cut from her womb.
CONCORD, N.H. — A baby girl cut from her mother's womb in Massachusetts was in good condition at a New Hampshire hospital on Thursday, officials said, and a woman arrested at a homeless shelter with the infant was to appear in court.
Thirty-five-year-old Julie Corey of Worcester, Mass., was arrested Wednesday in Plymouth, N.H., where police found her and a man with the child at the shelter. Corey was charged as a fugitive from justice and was to be arraigned Thursday morning in district court in Concord.
The two appear to have lived in the same apartment building as the slain woman, public records show.
Corey was arrested after acquaintances became suspicious of her claims that she had just given birth, police have said.
The man who was taken into custody with Corey, 27-year-old Alex Dion, was released to a family member.
The body of the girl's mother, Darlene Haynes, was found Monday in a closet at her Worcester apartment. It was not until an autopsy that authorities discovered the fetus was missing.
A public records database shows that someone named Julie Corey lived in the same building as Haynes in the past, and an Alex Dion is listed as living in the same building currently.
Michele Hutchins, spokeswoman at Speare Memorial Hospital in Plymouth, says the baby was in good condition Thursday morning. She said the baby was brought in at 5:50 p.m. Wednesday and was days old.
