CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The boyfriend of the Massachusetts woman accused of kidnapping a baby girl who had been cut from her slain mother's womb says he was convinced he was the infant's father.

Alex Dion, who was with Julie Corey when she was arrested in New Hampshire on Wednesday, tells the Boston Herald that Corey told him she was pregnant shortly after a breakup in October. He says Corey told him she gave birth early on July 24.

Dion says he thought he had a "brand-new daughter" and was surprised when police with guns drawn surrounded the car that he, Corey and the baby were in outside a New Hampshire homeless shelter.

Dion was released after questioning. Corey remains jailed. Authorities are investigating the death of 23-year-old Darlene Haynes, who was found dead Monday in her apartment.
