WORCESTER, Mass. — A Massachusetts judge has denied a request to dismiss charges against a woman accused of killing a pregnant woman and cutting the unborn baby from her womb.

The judge in Worcester Superior Court ruled last week there was "substantial" evidence to link Julie Corey to the July 2009 slaying of Darlene Haynes and the abduction of her unborn child.

The Telegram & Gazette reports that Corey's lawyers had filed a motion to dismiss murder and kidnapping charges, saying prosecutors didn't give the grand jury any evidence linking her to Haynes' killing.

Prosecutors say the 37-year-old Worcester woman beat and strangled Haynes, who was eight months pregnant, before taking the fetus.

Corey and her boyfriend were found days later with the baby in a Plymouth, N.H., homeless shelter. Corey has pleaded not guilty.
