US baby kidnap 'mother' Ann Pettway pleads guilty

A US woman, who stole a baby from a New York City hospital in 1987 and raised the child as her own, has pleaded guilty to kidnapping.

As the stolen infant's real mother wept in the federal court in Manhattan, Ann Pettway offered no explanation for the abduction.

Pettway, 51, was arrested last year after the victim, Carlina White, solved her own kidnapping.
