A Bronx juror was so distressed at the sight of grisly photos depicting the butchered remains of a pregnant woman whose baby was carved from her womb that she fainted and had to be rushed to the hospital Thursday.

Appearing at the Bronx Supreme Court on Tuesday, Ashleigh Wade, hid her face Tuesday as prosecutors presented chilling photos of the bloodbath  and jurors looked on in sheer horror and disbelief.
The case is centered around the grisly tableau of Wade methodically disabling and then gutting her pregnant childhood friend on the morning of the pregnant woman’s wedding day in order to steal her unborn child.

Before the photographs were introduced into evidence on Thursday, the bereaved family left the courtroom. The previously stoic Wade, on trial for allegedly slaughtering, then gutting Sutton to steal her baby, did not look at the photos or members of the panel.

Wade’s pregnancy was a hoax and when her friend arrived, she attacked Sutton who was 81/2 months pregnant with a paring knife, slicing her larynx so she could not scream and then cutting out her uterus, taking the baby and discarding the organ on the bathroom floor, prosecutors have said.
The now 22-month-old girl Jenasis miraculously survived, and lives with her father, but one photo revealed the newborn received two gashes on her right thigh as Wade cut her from Sutton’s body.
