BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Attorneys for a woman accused of cutting an unborn baby from another woman’s womb unsuccessfully tried to subpoena information on people who donated money to the victim.
The Longmont Times-Call (https://bit.ly/1NFCII7 ) reports that a judge tossed the subpoenas earlier this month. The attorneys also sought unedited footage from victim Michelle Wilkins’ September appearance on the “Dr. Phil” show.
Dynel Lane is charged with attempted murder, unlawful termination of a pregnancy and multiple counts of felony assault. Prosecutors say she attacked Wilkins and removed the unborn baby girl from her womb March 18.
Supporters set up websites that raised nearly $125,000 for Wilkins.
Boulder County District Attorney Garnett called the subpoenas a “fishing-expedition” to harass and embarrass witnesses, not to seek usable evidence.
Lane’s trial is scheduled to start in February.
