CHICAGO, ILLINOIS — A woman and two men were charged Sunday with stabbing a couple to death and taking their two children so she could pass off the baby girl as her own.

Adriana M., 22, convinced a cousin and an acquaintance to help her kill a factory worker and his wife, in the early morning hours of March 28, police said.

Police say the motive was to steal the couple’s 2-month-old baby.
