Two remain in jail in midwifery case

Published October 22, 2006


BRADENTON - A judge ruled that two women, sentenced for practicing midwifery without a license, should remain in prison, ignoring a higher court ruling that they should be free on bond pending an appeal.

Linda McGlade, 55, and her daughter-in-law, Tanya McGlade, 27, were sentenced to 2½ years in prison in June.

State Circuit Judge Edward Nicholas said Thursday he was worried the women would continue to deliver babies and are a threat to public safety.

The McGlades aided a relative during a 2004 birth. Mara McGlade, 25, bled to death internally two days after delivering a healthy baby boy at home.
