Pregnant woman drugged, hanged and stabbed to death before unborn baby is cut from her womb in horror attack


A pregnant woman had her baby cut from her womb after she was hanged and knifed in a horrific killing, say police.

Mum-to-be Naiara Silva Costa thought she would be collecting bags of donated clothes and accessories for her baby when she went to the home where she was murdered.

However, the 22-year-old, who was eight months pregnant, was lured to her death by a woman who wanted the baby child for her own, authorities claim.

In a shocking act of barbarity, Mrs Costa was drugged, hanged and then stabbed before the baby was cut from her womb.

The child did not survive.

Neighbour Marcos Pereira raised the alarm after Carmo paid him to dig a hole in her garden, claiming she intended to plant vegetables.

The neighbour became suspicious and called police because the hole was two metres long and one metre deep, O Globo reported.
