A Massachusetts woman accused of beating and strangling her pregnant friend, then cutting the fetus from her womb, is set to face a jury almost five years after the gruesome crime.
Corey's lawyers and prosecutors are expected to make opening statements Monday to a Worcester Superior Court jury.
Prosecutors say Corey was the last person seen with Haynes. Two days after Haynes' body was found, Corey and her boyfriend were found in a New Hampshire shelter with a newborn. DNA testing showed the girl was Haynes'.
Corey has pleaded not guilty to kidnapping and murder charges.
