Convicted in 2009, woman will spend the rest of her life behind bars without parole

The case shocked and sickened the nation. Now, Julie Corey, convicted in the 2009 bludgeoning and strangling death of her friend, 23-year-old Darlene Haynes - and tearing Haynes' unborn child from her wound, has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

DNA evidence and a fingerprint on a bottle at the crime scene tied Julie Corey to the killing. According to trial testimony, Corey tried to pass the baby off as her own to family and friends.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Haynes' body was found in her apartment on July 27, 2009. She was eight months pregnant at the time of her death. Haynes' baby was found with Corey in New Hampshire shortly afterwards.

DNA evidence and a fingerprint on a bottle at the crime scene tied Corey to the killing. According to trial testimony, Corey tried to pass the baby off as her own to family and friends.

"It's probably the most horrific case this office has seen," said Worcester County District Attorney Joseph Early Jr. "This woman was killed for her baby."

"There was no surprise in the sentence. It is a mandatory sentence under Massachusetts statutory law. A notice of appeal has been filed," Corey's attorney, Michael C. Wilcox says.

Corey was originally sentenced to life in prison for the murder of Haynes in 2009.

Corey's father, Earl Corey, Sr. had prepared himself for his daughter to be found guilty, but added that "There's just so many unanswered questions. I just don't understand how a jury could come up with first-degree murder."

"I don't think justice has been served," Earl Corey says. "I think there's still some pretty bad people walking the streets of Worcester that should be in jail."

The Coreys plan to travel to Boston, if there's an appeal hearing before the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court. Julie Corey's attorneys have filed a notice of appeal.

"I don't believe she had anything to do with killing Darlene," Corey says. "She obviously knows who did."

Julie Corey was pregnant in the months leading up to the murder. But has a stillbirth in June.

Corey's father and wife have custody of one of Julie Corey's five children, a 17-year-old boy. He visits his mom in prison, and attended the trial for one day. Corey's four other children are scattered, living on their own or with other relatives.
