    I cannot get over this kind of thing when it happens. This is so horrible.

    It seems like there are more and more of these. It is scary that a hopeful new parent, at the time they are the most vulnerable (very pregnant) could be a target for some sicko.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    I hope mom recovers quickly. I can't believe people do this sort of thing. The SII folks will be having a field day with this one.

    Yes, that was Bobbi Jo Stinet. Unfortunately, Bobbi Jo was murdered, but Fortunately they found the baby. A little girl.

    This deranged woman - Peggy Jo Conner, must be mentally ill. I can't think of another explanation. She has 3 of her own children living with her and appears to be pretending a 7-8 mo. pregnancy.

    Really - I'm flabbergasted! How could any sane woman beat half to death her pregnant neighbor (who also has a 7 yr. old child) - slit open her abdomen - then sit calmly in a car waiting for her victim to die so she can harvest the baby & keep it as her own???? How sick is that!!!

    What power or evil notion could make a woman - herself, a mother, that desperate, cruel & vicious??? I just don't get it! What the H___ is going on in this country?? It's insane - totally insane!

    Oskin, 30, later underwent an emergency Caesarean section at a hospital. State police Thursday said she was in critical condition and her baby in stable condition. She was believed to have been in her third trimester of pregnancy, authorities said.

    Peggy Jo Conner, 38, of Ford City, was arraigned Thursday on charges of attempted homicide and aggravated assault and was jailed without bail.

    Conner had told her live-in partner before the attack that she was pregnant, and investigators found baby-related items in her trailer, Armstrong County District Attorney Scott Andreassi said.

    "Clearly, she was expecting a child coming in shortly," Andreassi said. "There's nothing to indicate she was pregnant."

    Conner cut Oskin across her abdomen with a razor knife, authorities said.

    "She was sliced over an old (Caesarean) scar and severely bleeding," Trooper Jonathan Bayer said.

    Sound like this women "claimed" to be pregnant to "hold on" to her man.......

    Then of course she had to produce a baby.........

    Disgusting..........

    There was a movie sometime ago that was like this, except the women kidnapped the baby from a poor single Mom...........and then "claimed" to hubby, that it was "theirs", because the marriage was on the rocks and she thought the baby would "keep" them together.........

    A friend of mine has a sister who is due any day, and she is worried something like this will happen to her. The sister in a nurse in a large hospital and comes in contact with a lot of strange people all the time.

    Update: Attack Victim recovering

    What a strange story.


    A mother whose abdomen was slashed by a neighbor allegedly trying to steal her baby was improving in a hospital on Friday, police said.

    The baby -- born by emergency Caesarean section -- was fine, state police said.

    Valerie Oskin, 30, was believed to have been eight months pregnant when neighbor Peggy Joe Conner allegedly clubbed her with a bat and slashed her with a knife on Wednesday.

    Conner, 38, had a bassinet and a baby swing waiting at her home, police say.

    Conner was arraigned Thursday on charges of attempted homicide and aggravated assault and jailed without bail.

    "Clearly, she was expecting a child coming in shortly," prosecutor Scott Andreassi said. "There's nothing to indicate she was pregnant."

    The attack Wednesday was stopped before her baby was taken because a teenager on an all-terrain vehicle came across the women, police said.

    State police said Friday that doctor's expected to removed Oskin's breathing tube.

    "She's coming around," said Lt. Thomas Dubovi.

    Thomas Wilks, who says he is Conner's husband but is separated from her, called the allegations against her "impossible" and said she truly was pregnant.

    "I got a sonogram saying she is pregnant," Wilks told reporters. "I felt the baby kick in her stomach." He added that Conner is the mother of three children, ages 16, 14 and 11.

    Conner and Oskin had a "close friendship," Wilks said. "It was getting closer as the days went by. They were pregnant together. They were helping each other out."

    The assault began Wednesday morning, when Conner hit Oskin several times with a bat, Andreassi said.

    Conner then put Oskin and Oskin's 7-year-old son in her car, dropped the boy off at a family member's house and drove the pregnant woman about 15 miles to a secluded area about 50 miles northeast of Pittsburgh, Andreassi said.

    There, Conner cut Oskin about six to eight inches across her abdomen with a razor knife, authorities said.
