(Newser) – A pregnant woman apparently slain for her unborn child was lured on Craigslist, the Oregonian reports. Heather Snively, 21—who was due next month—was found dead in a crawl space of an Oregon home. Police discovered the corpse after the woman who lives there, Korena Roberts, arrived at a local hospital with a baby boy who doctors determined wasn't hers. The baby died soon afterward.

Roberts was arrested under suspicion of murdering Snively, apparently in order to steal her baby. The 27-year-old mom of two may also face charges for the baby's death at today's arraignment. Snively was lured to Roberts' home by an ad offering used baby clothes. Roberts had recently told neighbors she was pregnant, but didn't appear to be, witnesses said.
