Terre Haute, Indiana police are shocked by a 34-year-old woman’s alleged plot to kill a couple to steal their newborn baby.  Police call the case “bizarre.”

The drama unfolded Wednesday after police say Stephanie Foster approached the home of a couple asking to use their phone.  She allegedly forced herself into the home, stabbing the couple, Michael and Ashley Speer.
