HOLDENVILLE, Oklahoma (AP) -- A missing pregnant woman was found dead in a field with her abdomen cut open and the fetus removed, and a 37-year-old woman was in custody after bringing a dead fetus to a hospital.

A hunter found the body of Carolyn Simpson, 21, of Okemah in a field near Lamar, about 100 miles southeast of Oklahoma City, on Friday. She had been shot in the head, said Tommy Graham, an Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation regional inspector.

Simpson was six months pregnant when she was last seen December 22 at a tribal casino in Okemah where she worked. One day after Simpson's disappearance, Effie Goodson brought a dead fetus that had reached six months' gestation to a hospital about 30 miles from Okemah, saying she was the mother, authorities said.

So sad I'm glad they found the perp,how sickening. Especially in Oklahoma pretty much a non-violent state when I lived there. But I guess in the society we live today violence is everywhere! :twocents:

A Hughes County judge concurred with an evaluation that found a woman is mentally competent to stand trial for allegedly killing an acquaintance so she could steal her unborn baby.
