A North Dakota woman who admitted killing a pregnant neighbor and cutting the baby from the uterus while the mom was still alive has been sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole.

Brooke Crews pleaded guilty in December to conspiracy to commit kidnapping, conspiracy to commit murder and lying to law officers in the August departure of 22-year-old Savanna Greywind of Fargo. State District Judge Frank Racek sentenced Crews on Friday.

Prosecutors say Crews confessed to cutting the infant while Greywind went in and out of consciousness.

Fargo Police Chief Dave Todd earlier called her death a “cruel and vicious act of depravity.” Her disappearance sparked extensive searches before her body was discovered wrapped in plastic in a river.

The infant was found alive in the flat that the 38-year-old Crews shared with her 32-year-old boyfriend, William Hoehn (hayn). He is scheduled for trial in March.
