Mo. Mom’s Throat Slashed, Newborn Taken

LONEDELL, Mo. (AP) — A woman slashed the throat of a new mother in a rural Missouri home Friday and fled with her 1-week-old daughter, the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department said.

The 21-year-old mother, who was in serious condition in a St. Louis hospital, told police she did not know the attacker who had knocked on her door to use the telephone, Maj. Mike Copeland said.

Stephenie Ochsenbine’s 1-year-old son was also in the house at the time, but was unharmed. Her boyfriend, James Woods, was at work at the time, Copeland said.

He said the attacker stabbed Ochsenbine several times and slit her throat. Ochsenbine passed out. When she awoke, she discovered the baby missing and went to neighbor Pat Bearden’s home to call police. She may have been unconscious for some time, police said.


Suspect is a white female in her late 30′s. She is approximately 5’8″ and 200 lbs, with dark or black hair pulled up under a ball cap with a worn grey bill. Suspect was last seen wearing a brown t-shirt with blue jean shorts, sunglasses, and a black scarf around her neck. She is described as having a female mustache. She is armed with an unknown handgun and a fillet knife.
