THE BRONX, N.Y. -- (WPIX) -- Wednesday saw the sentencing of a woman who had faked her own pregnancy and then, on what would have been the wedding day of a friend who was nearly 9 months pregnant, she killed her friend and cut the baby out of the expectant mother's body.
It's a story so horrible that one of the jurors fainted upon seeing the evidence during trial. Now, murder convict Ashleigh Wade has learned her fate for the 2015 killing and kidnapping, but not without first making a statement of remorse before victim Angelikque Sutton's family.
"I'm so, so sorry," Wade said, tears running down her cheeks so heavily that the court clerk handed her a stack of tissues. "No words can say how sorry I am. I'm sorry for hurting so many people. I wish I knew why."
