CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Prosecutors in Massachusetts say the woman found with an infant who had been cut out of her friend's womb had convinced her family and friends that she was pregnant.

Worcester District Attorney Joseph Early Jr. says Julie Corey's boyfriend told authorities that Corey was nine months' pregnant.

The body of Corey's friend, Darlene Haynes, was found Monday in her Worcester apartment by her landlord. Haynes was eight months' pregnant.

Corey had the 4-pound baby girl with her when she was arrested at a shelter in Plymouth, N.H., Wednesday. She is charged with kidnapping, but has not been charged in Haynes' murder. She is being held on $2 million bail in New Hampshire.

Early said authorities are still investigating whether anyone else was involved.
