Wife of Slain Policeman Is Surrogate Mother For Friends

September 16, 1987

DETROIT (AP) _ The wife of one of three suburban policemen killed in July has given birth to a baby, acting as a surrogate mother for friends.

The healthy 9-pound, 7-ounce girl was born Sept. 5 at Oakwood Hospital in Dearborn and went home with Inkster Patrolman Stephen Borisch and his wife, Cindy.

The baby was carried by Laura Dubiel, whose husband, Officer Daniel Dubiel, was one of three Inkster policemen killed in a July 9-10 standoff at an Inkster motel.

Dubiel had asked his wife to be a surrogate mother for the Borisches, who could not have children of their own and who had tried unsuccessfully to adopt a child.

″The baby’s fine and Laura’s fine,″ Stephen Borisch said Tuesday, but he would not discuss details, including the baby’s name. ″We just want to fade back into obscurity,″ he said.

The Borisches paid Mrs. Dubiel’s medical expenses. Noel P. Keane, a Dearborn attorney, arranged the surrogate contract.

The baby was conceived by artificial insemination nearly seven months before the fatal shootings of Dubiel, Officer Clay Hoover and Sgt. Ira Parker in a standoff at the Bungalow Motel.

Alberta Easter, 69, and her three sons, Roy Lemons Jr., 43, George Lemons, 45, and William Lemons, 47, are charged with murder in the slayings.
