BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) — A Kentucky woman has been sentenced to life in prison in the brutal murder of a pregnant acquaintance whose baby boy was ripped from her womb.

Kathy Coy of Morgantown agreed to the sentence in a deal last month in which she avoided a possible death penalty by pleading guilty but mentally ill to killing 21-year-old Jamie Stice last year and taking the baby.

The boy, named Isaiah, survived and is a thriving 10-month-old.
