Ashleigh Wade and Angelikque Sutton

A Bronx woman fatally stabbed her pregnant friend and cut the woman's baby out of her womb, the NY Post reports.

Ashleigh Wade, left, who identified as a pregnant woman, is being held without bond in the brutal murder of her friend Angelikque Sutton, right.

Police say Wade and Sutton were childhood friends whose paths crossed again when Sutton was nine months pregnant.

According to the Post, the two women reconnected at Applebee’s in Co-op City. There was an instant affinity as Wade and Sutton shopped for baby items together.

On Friday, Wade invited Sutton to her Bronx apartment. When Sutton arrived, Wade grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed Sutton repeatedly.

As Sutton slowly bled to death, Wade performed a crude cesarean section, ripping the baby girl out of her dying mother's body and saving the baby's life.

Wade then called her boyfriend, Angel Praylow, and told him to come over... she did something bad.

Praylow, who believed Wade was really pregnant, arrived at the apartment and saw the newborn and a dying Sutton in a blood-spattered bedroom. The placenta was on the floor of the bedroom.

Wade told Praylow that Sutton attacked her -- and she stabbed Sutton in self-defense. Praylow said Wade told him she gave birth to the baby girl during the struggle.

Praylow, believing the infant was his daughter, wrapped the baby in his jacket and called 911.

“It’s my baby!” Wade screamed when police arrived and discovered Sutton near death, with a gaping hole in her abdomen.

Police placed Wade under arrest and bundled her into the backseat of a police cruiser. She was transported to a mental hospital for a psych evaluation. Her hands were still caked in dried blood.

Sutton was rushed to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

At the psychiatric hospital, Wade changed her story. She told police she stabbed Sutton in self-defense. She said she cut her baby out of her body to save the baby.

Police say Wade pretended to be pregnant for months. She told everyone she was due to deliver a baby girl next week.

Wade's charade was so convincing that she fooled her landlord, Angela Parris, an OB/GYN nurse.

“I can’t believe that. She had me fooled,” Parris told the NY Post.

“She was just excited and wanted to have this baby girl. She looked pregnant. She was pregnant,” said Parris.

    O my god. What a sad story. God bless the poor poor baby

  • SandrasNewFave

    Thank you, Ms. Rose for making sense of this story. It sounded like a stolen baby scenario but the scattered details made it hard to follow.

    Wade, left, who identified as a pregnant woman- I'ma need people to be or not be. Identify as black; Identify as pregnant; Identify as Cait. Can I identify as Native American and get a check? Can I identify as a vet and buy a house for $1? Can I identify as Secret Service and pat Obama down? No? Yeah, didn't think so.

  • SummerBaby

    I have never understood this type of crime. I can't wrap my brain around it. No matter how many times I hear about this type of thing it will never make sense to me. RIP! ??

  • JennyJazzhands

    This is the exact plot behind some of my favorite lifetime movies except the mother always survives with the baby. This woman should spend the rest of her life in prison.

  • Mahogany

    What a sad story this Sunday morning

  • Well.well$well

    She was that desperate to have a child? Smh. I never got why people fake pregnancies. You can only fake it for so long before people figure out you're not.

  • shell

    hes been with her for a while and he was exicted about having a baby. she couldnt have kids and was crazy. she liked the attention and knew she was going to be exposed at any moment

  • 1/8

    Here's another reason I'm glad I don't have a Facebook page. When you lose touch with certain people, you need to let them stay lost.

  • BLOODBLOOD

    Woooooooow!!!!!!

  • 1/8

    She had to a fake a pregnancy, because nature knew she wasn't fit to be a mother. More than likely, she wasn't able to conceive a child.

  • TheRealLee

    Not mental, no self defense, pre-meditated murder = jail time, lots of jail time. The incidence for this sort of thing is real low but pregnant women should beware they are specifically targeted for this.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    It's a mental disorder similar to gender dysphoria. In both cases the sufferer has delusions of being something they are not. They both require external validation from others, but only one is truly psychotic and kills to validate their belief.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Right. Pregnant women should avoid making new friends. They should beware of casual associates who suddenly show an increased interest in their pregnancy and lavishes them with baby gifts -- especially in their 3rd trimester

  • SummerBaby

    Thanks! Is there anything that we can do to prevent this? Are there any signs?

  • Michelle Peele

    Hope the baby is okay. This is utter craziness. I agree with the poster who said (I'm paraphrasing) 'sometimes you just need to let the past stay in the past.' People are crazy.

  • Angela

    Satan the Devil has such a firm tight grip on this world the only remedy is God. And may he be with this poor baby who for now will never get a chance to know her mama because of this monster. Prayers to the victims family.

    “She was just excited and wanted to have this baby girl. She looked pregnant. She was pregnant,” said Parris.<-----THEN WHERE'S HER BABY?

    If she lives in the hood of the Bronx, unfortunately it is expected. So many have mental illnesses, are not even put into mental institutions, put in the hood with "section 8"(which is about to be cancelled) and they are on their own and see what happens to feed the prison system. I found out why they call them hoodrats now. Just sad this system

  • understandingoverignorance

    Mental illness is very real...This woman is what you call mentally insane she has no human emotion or understanding to perform a crude c-section on a woman and to be a woman makes you know all the more she is insane.

    I could see a jealous he/she transgender who can't have a child but another woman your insane.

  • Cricket404

    I used to try to rap my mind around the crazy shiat that people do but it was affecting me and making me sick to my stomach.

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    Baby-faced killer, smh.
    They should prob keep her locked up - I wouldn't be surprised if some of Angelikque's people were looking to "have a little talk" with Ashleigh.
    And what's up with the boyfriend? He's either real slow, real distant, or perhaps both. How do you not know this girl ain't pregnant? Also, where's her family? Because this level of violence had to be preceded by SOME other abnormal behavior. It's hard to believe that Ashleigh just woke up THAT day and was crazy. No; this scheming demon planned and plotted this murder!

  • 1/8

    I never thought of it that way, but this seems to be a common occurrence; so, that sounds like good advice.

    It's very hard to prevent delusions because they are mental illnesses. One glaring sign is a woman's complete obsession with pregnancy and being pregnant. Women who have a history of faking pregnancies in the past should be monitored carefully when she is around other pregnant women.

    What is with these women!? Are they infertile, insane, or both!? I mean, who the hell does that?

  • SunnyChi

    I saw this on the morning news smh. This is so sad. I really don't understand why someone would fake a pregnancy?! Smh

  • 80sChild

    I think I heard pregnant women have a higher homicide rate. With women who can't have children or are living in a fantasy land and will kill to get one or even men who don't want their unborn babies will kill the mother and unborn baby, pregnant women are a target. Very, very sad.

    Some of the disturbing stuff I read...I just can't believe its real, but unfortunately they are real. The end is fast approaching, I use to be afraid of it happening, but now I feel sooner the better. Only God can help us now.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Let me go back and re-reas because I'm confused as to whether the murderer is actually pregnant.

  • Cricket404

    FYI- Levels of insanity are listed in an over 1000 page book that updates every couple of years to add more disorders. Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders a manual published by the American Psychiatric Association (APA) that includes all currently recognized mental health disorders. For example there over 50 types of Bi-Polar disorders.

    Anything is possible and I didn't ask for receipts, but as far as I could tell, it was a man.

    I met him in a south side park known for gay cruising. He was flirting with me when a mutual friend joined our conversation. The mutual friend, in an effort to be shady, asked about the guy's baby and that got the ball rolling.

    The mother lost her life trusting a friend who more a foe

    The Boyfriend whose life has been altered by the crime scene , being deceived, guarantee next time he going to be asking for receipts ( going to appointments & she must have convinced him he didn't need to go to pre-natal appointments)

    Oh Lord. This reminds me of a similar incident where the killer pretended to be pregnant to try to "keep" a man, and befriended another pregnant woman... sickening. Now her fat greasy azz is gonna rot in jail, the dude (who was already probably cheating on her anyway) is gonna go lay up with some other desperate chick and a poor baby is without a momma.

    Gender dyphoria is not a mental condition. Check the latest DSM. Gender is a biological determination resulting from hormonal balance and both genetic and epigenetic factors. As such gender is somewhat fluid.

  • the guest

    Agreed. Used to be a woman being with child was a private family experience. I see now this was for safety too. These days women are too outgoing and trusting with their pregnancies. I'm old school with boundaries though. Didn't let strangers or acquaintances pat or rub my belly. Always thought that was strange how people feel they can touch a pregnant woman's belly.

    Jealousy is the root of most evil. Keeping jealous people out of your life must be a top priority.

    yep, facebook and i don't see eye to eye. not at all.

    Same here... I don't friend anyone that I don't know personally.. My ex has faked pages to stalk me in the past so I am very cautious about who I friend.. And if I get request from someone I know, I ask them before I accept.. Can never be too careful.

    Yo I know a girl that lives in Gwinnett that did this to this married man I know. They worked at Waffle House and she lied about being pregnant for forever then she supposedly had a sickly baby and sent the baby to Tennessee with her family. The idiot slept with her still so long story short she ended up getting "pregnant while she was pregnant" exact quote. This dummy is getting $8 somethings a month in child support now...she should be in the mental institute

    Naw people been crazy...difference is it's 24/7 in our face thanks to technology. Back in the day took weeks just to find out someone died through slow mail lol.

  • Meena

    She was probably FAT!!

  • Sincerity7

    If these 9 month pregnant chicks ain't watched enough Lifetime movies to know the "friend" is plotting on the baby.... Stay in the house until you deliver! And then stay in the house with your baby 3 months after that too!

  • the guest

    I would politely move their hands away. I thought it was crazy that a stranger would walk over with both hands out ready to grab my belly. I guess most women mean well but still I felt protective over my belly. God, I wish the victim in this article was more guarded over herself in her 9th month. I didn't go anywhere I didn't have to at the end of last trimester. This story is sad because its sounds like the pregnant woman was lonely in her pregnancy and needed a friend and that evil fake friend took advantage.

  • Pebbles

    That's hard to believe! He must've been a quack! There is usually a series of test done for pregnant women,urine test in some cases blood test to establish pregnancy, , then there's the vaginal checks, ultrasounds...etc.,

    Something not adding up here !

  • the guest

    Pregnant women are allowed to say no to belly touching.

  • my view

    What in the world.....

  • SellieBaby

    This girl and married man was sleeping around at the job. She told him she was pregnant (faking) to get him to sleep with her raw. This girl borrowed her friends baby...took pictures...said the baby was sick. Then he kept trying to see the baby she said he couldn't because she was scared his wife wouldn't accept the baby.

    So when he told his wife the girl then said he couldn't see the baby because she sent him to TN with her family. Meanwhile she actually became pregnant because he was sleeping with her believing this lie.

    She had the baby...baby was his. He now pays $8xx a month in child support despite his other kids...(she lied about the amount of childcare she pays).

    Sounds crazy right? Real life situation lol

  • Meena

    Wow! Thanks Selliebaby! what a crazy BIAAA!! HEARTLESS! I really hope she has NO OTHER KIDS and that she treats that baby well :(... At first I thought you were referring that she was receiving $8 dollars a month (which is what that mentally ill person deserves!! Not baby but HER!) But if its $800+ that's CRAZY! He should try and get custody and have her CRAZY ARSE pay C.S!!! What gets me, is $800+ having other kids and working at Waffle House??? WHERE THAT HAPPEN AT?? lol

  • Meena

    If she's NOT mentally ill than she's COMPLETELY STUPID!! Because a sane person for ONE would NEVER do that, but would ALSO know you cut a baby out of someone they will DEFINITELY find out!!! No PPL the B**ch was INSANE, YO!!!
