BOULDER, Colo. -

The Latest on the sentencing hearing for a Colorado woman convicted of attempted murder after cutting a nearly 8-month-old fetus from a stranger's womb (all times local):
    
3:25 p.m.
    
A judge has sentenced a Colorado woman to 100 years in prison for cutting a nearly 8-month-old fetus from a stranger's womb.
    
A jury convicted 36-year-old Dynel Lane in February of attempting to kill Michelle Wilkins in 2015. Lane, who was sentenced Friday, was also convicted of assault and unlawful termination of a pregnancy. She had lured Wilkins with an ad for maternity clothes.
    
Prosecutors say they were unable to charge Lane with murdering the unborn girl because a coroner found no evidence that the fetus lived outside the womb. That led Colorado Republicans to introduce legislation that would have allowed a murder charge. Democrats rejected the measure, the third time such a proposal failed in Colorado. Over the objection of abortion-rights supporters, 38 states have made a fetus's killing a homicide.

10 a.m.
    
A judge is set to sentence a Colorado woman convicted of attempted murder after cutting a nearly 8-month-old fetus from a stranger's womb.
    
Boulder County District Attorney Stan Garnett has said 36-year-old Dynel Lane could spend the rest of her life in prison after a jury convicted her in February of attempting to kill Michelle Wilkins.
    
Lane was also convicted of assault and unlawful termination of a pregnancy in the 2015 attack.
    
Prosecutors say they were not able to charge her with murder in the death of the unborn girl because a coroner found no evidence the fetus lived outside the womb.
    
Prosecutors say Lane was obsessed with having a baby. Her attorneys argued the assault was not a calculated murder attempt, but an impulsive act.
