Woman accused of cutting woman to steal her babyPITTSBURGH - A woman clubbed her pregnant neighbor over the head with a baseball bat, drove her to the woods and cut her belly with a razor knife in an attempt to steal her baby, police say.
Police said Wednesday's attack on Valerie Oskin was stopped before her baby was taken after a teenager on an all-terrain vehicle came across the women.
Oskin, 30, later underwent an emergency Caesarean section at a hospital. State police said Thursday 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.

The rain was expected to continue through Saturday.

Health officials said the cases do not pose a threat to the general public because most people have been vaccinated against polio. But they said they expect to find more infections within the Amish community because some of its members refuse immunizations on religious grounds.
