A Texas woman was sentenced to death for killing a pregnant woman and removing the fetus from the victim.
The jury deliberated for about 2 hours before sentencing Taylor Parker, 29, to death, TXK Today reports.
Parker is accused of murdering Reagan Hancock, 21, and her unborn daughter in October 2020.
The prosecution said Parker faked her pregnancy using an elaborate scheme to keep her lover from leaving her.
She wore a fake belly, falsified data, wrote about her pregnancy on the internet, and even organized a party to reveal the gender of her fake unborn child.
On October 9, 2020, Parker smashed Hancock’s skull with a hammer and stabbed her more than 100 times before removing the unborn baby from her womb.
Parker ran away with the baby girl, who later died.
