FARGO, N.D. (AP) — The North Dakota Supreme Court has thrown out a life sentence for a man convicted of conspiring to kidnap a baby that his girlfriend had cut from their neighbor’s body.

A jury last year found William Hoehn, of Fargo, guilty for his role in the August 2017 death of Savanna Greywind. That came after Hoehn’s girlfriend, Brooke Crews, admitted that she sliced Greywind’s baby from her womb.

Hoehn had faced a maximum 21 years behind bars, but state Judge Tom Olson granted prosecutors’ request to label Hoehn a dangerous offender, enhancing his maximum sentence to life with the possibility of parole.

The Supreme Court said in a ruling released Thursday that Hoehn should not have been received that designation and ordered that Hoehn receive a new sentence.
