Bail hearing postponed for alleged baby kidnapper

The woman accused of kidnapping a baby from a Trois-Rivieres hospital May 26 will return to court on July 17.

Valerie Poulin-Collins was due in court for a bail hearing today, but that has been put off, to give her lawyers more time to prepare their case.

Earlier, Poulin-Collins was deemed capable of appearing after she underwent a week-long psychiatric evaluation.

The 21-year-old woman is accused of walking into the hospital disguised as a nurse and snatching little Victoria Boisclair, who had been born 16 hours earlier.

She had apparently told the new parents the child needed to be weighed.

If she's convicted, Collins could face life in prison.
