The woman accused of shooting a young mother to death and snatching her 3-day-old boy is a Texas nurse who told police she was planning to "adopt" the baby as her own after suffering a miscarriage, reports AP. Verna McClain, 30, confessed to killing 28-year-old Kala Golden outside a pediatrician's office in Houston and will face capital murder charges.
The sheriff's office said McClain told her fiance that she was pregnant and had given birth, and she apparently felt she needed to show him a baby so they would still get married in May, reports ABC News. McClain, who is estranged from her husband, already has three kids. McClain's sister told police that she spoke of needing to "do the adoption." The baby, Keegan, was recovered safely and is back with family members.
