Guilty plea in baby case

There has been a surprise guilty plea in the bizarre case that saw a woman barge into an Osoyoos mother’s home with a large knife “asking to see the baby.”

Court records confirm Sharon Forner, 45, pleaded guilty to one count of break and enter to commit an indictable offence on Friday in Penticton court.

She had been scheduled to appear for a re-election, after originally indicating she would take the matter to a jury trial.

The incident last year made international headlines due to its bizarre nature.

Surveillance footage at an Osoyoos home shows Forner approach the front door wearing a wig and yellow rubber gloves, wielding a large kitchen knife. A mother alone at home with her seven-week-old child answered the door. Forner then said she “just wanted to see the baby.”

The mother was able to defend herself and push the intruder outside, as shown on surveillance footage. Forner was arrested by police the following day.

An online court docket shows she will be back in court May 8 to confirm the completion of a psychological pre-sentence report.

She remains behind bars after violating the bail conditions of her original release.
