Upstate NY woman hid weapons in baby stroller

UTICA, N.Y. (AP) -- An upstate New York mom has pleaded guilty to packing more than diapers on her baby's stroller.

Stephanie Wilson of Utica cut a deal with prosecutors Thursday over the unloaded sawed-off shotgun stashed on the ride July 1. That's when she was arrested after a street confrontation with another woman over money.

Wilson pleaded guilty to attempted third-degree criminal possession of a weapon. She's expected to be sentenced Oct. 16.

Police also found several knives and a box cutter in the stroller.

Wilson told a judge her aunt had taken the baby out of the stroller and was holding her in her arms at the time of the confrontation.
