A woman accused of kidnapping a pregnant woman in an attempt to take her then unborn baby has been indicted on six charges, including attempted murder and kidnapping.
A Prince George's grand jury also indicted Veronica Dolores Deramous, 40, of Suitland, Md., with two degrees of assault, false imprisonment and reckless endangerment.
In December, Deramous allegedly lured 29-year-old Teka Adams, who was in her third term, from a Washington homeless shelter to her apartment with a promise of baby clothes and other items for the unborn child, police said.
Once Adams was in the apartment, Deramous "bound the victim's hands and proceeded to try to cut the victim's abdomen to try to get the baby out," said Officer Michelle Reedy, a spokeswoman for Prince George's County police. "They believe she wanted the victim's baby."
Adams managed to escape and her daughter, Miracle Sky, was delivered by emergency Cesarean section in December.
If convicted of all charges, Deramous faces up to life in prison.
