A Bronx woman was finally charged with kidnapping and murder after butchering a pregnant woman on her wedding day and cutting out her entire uterus to remove her unborn child.
The disturbing attack executed by Ashleigh Wade, 22, was not only vicious, but it was planned in multiple stages, prosecutors said Monday in court.
On Nov. 20, 2015, Angelikque Sutton was on her way to get married to Patrick Bradley; however, she made a last minute stop by Wade’s home. Wade, who was acquaintances with Sutton, promised the bride-to-be that she had a gift for her. However, when Sutton arrived at Wade’s home, she was attacked in several phases, reported The New York Post.
“The defendant cut Ms. Sutton’s larynx — her voice box,” Assistant Bronx DA Meredith Holtzman told the jury on Monday. “Ms. Sutton could not scream, could not say a word. She cut her major blood vessels.
“What the defendant did to her next is almost unspeakable,” Holtzman said. “Because after she had rendered Ms. Sutton unable to scream, unable to move, the defendant took a kitchen paring knife and sliced Ms. Sutton’s abdomen open at the bottom half.
“Once she had cut Ms. Sutton’s abdomen open, the defendant cut Ms. Sutton’s uterus entirely out. She cut that uterus open, took baby Jenasis out, and discarded that uterus on the bathroom floor,” Holtzman continued.
At her arraignment on Tuesday, Wade pleaded not guilty although she told police a different story when she was first arrested.
“How long until I go to jail? I did it. I killed her. I just want to go,” Wade told cops, according to court papers. “I just killed someone. I stabbed her as many times as I could.”
The court papers also included Wade’s written statement, which detailed the attack she said was in self-defense.
