The Bronx woman convicted of killing a pregnant woman and cutting out her baby is expected to be sentenced today.

Jurors found Ashleigh Wade guilty of murder and kidnapping earlier this month.

In 2015, Wade killed her childhood friend, Angelikque Sutton, in her Wakefield apartment and attempted to steal her baby.  

Wade is facing 50 years to life in prison.

The baby is now 2 years old and doing well.
