Woman Indicted for ’87 Kidnapping of Baby in Harlem
(MSNBC) — A woman who raised a baby girl she allegedly took from a Harlem hospital more than 20 years ago has been indicted for kidnapping. A federal grand jury in New York brought the charges against Ann Pettway for “unlawfully, willfully and knowingly” taking Carlina White, now 23, from her hospital crib at Harlem Hospital in 1987. The baby was 19 days old. The grand jury said Pettway “abducted” and “willfully transported” the baby out of state. Under the name of Nejdra Nance, White grew up in Connecticut and later Georgia under Pettway’s care.
