Posted: Updated:

WORCESTER, Mass. — Police in central Massachusetts say a baby girl who was cut from her mother's womb has been found alive and two people have been arrested in the woman's killing.

Police said Wednesday the girl appears to be in fair health at a New Hampshire hospital.

Thirty-five-year-old Julie Corey and an unidentified man have been arrested in New Hampshire after friends said they were suspicious of Corey's claims she had given birth. Corey has been charged as a fugitive from justice.

Corey was in custody and could not be reached for comment late Wednesday. Police did not know whether she had a lawyer.

The baby's mother, Darlene Haynes, was eight months pregnant. She was found dead in her apartment Monday. The 23-year-old's death has been ruled a homicide.
