A Bronx woman is accused of methodically cutting her childhood friend’s throat on her wedding day so she couldn’t scream before cutting her entire uterus out to steal her baby girl before dumping the deflated organ on the bathroom floor.
Angelikque Sutton, 22, was nearly nine months pregnant and on her way to the courthouse to marry Patrick Bradley when she stopped by the Bronx home of her friend, Ashleigh Wade in 2015.
But Wade, who unsuspectingly lured Sutton to the apartment by promising her a gift, had other plans for Sutton, prosecutors said during the opening statements of her first-degree murder trial on Monday.
Wade allegedly cut Sutton’s throat, preventing her to scream before cutting her baby girl from her womb.
‘This was an attack that took place in stages,’ Assistant Bronx DA Meredith Holtzman told the jury during Wade’s trial.
