A Kentucky (search) woman who fended off an attack last week by another woman who may have planned on stealing her fetus has given birth to a healthy baby.

Sarah Brady gave birth to a 7-pound, 4-ounce girl Wednesday.

Brady fought off an attack by Katherine Smith (search) last Thursday, after the woman pulled a knife on her. Brady fought back and stabbed Smith three times with the weapon.

After Smith died of her injuries, police found baby nursery and surgical items in her Edgewood (search), Ky. home. Police also say Smith had been telling people she was pregnant and wearing maternity clothing. An autopsy conducted on Smith's remains indicated she was not pregnant.

Brady has not been charged in the case, and police have said she acted in self-defense.
