Woman charged with murder after mother killed and baby kidnapped

SPRING, Texas (AP) - A prosecutor says a woman has been charged with capital murder in the fatal shooting of a mother and the abduction of her newborn son near Houston.

Montgomery County District Attorney Brett Lignon says Verna McClain was charged early Wednesday in the killing of Kala Marie Golden.

Witnesses say Golden died Tuesday afternoon after another woman shot her, snatched the 3-day-old baby from her arms and drove away.

Lignon told ABC that McClain's statement to investigators indicate the shooting was part of a plan to kidnap a child.

He says he doesn't think Golden was specifically targeted.

The baby, Keegan, was found unharmed Tuesday evening. Lignon says Child Protective Services are looking after Keegan but that they expect him to soon be reunited with his father.
