Houston nurse accused of murder, kidnapping

Posted on Friday, April 20th, 2012    

A 30 year-old Houston nurse appeared in court this week after she was accused of shooting a new mother and kidnapping the woman’s newborn son outside of a pediatrician’s office.

She is facing a capital murder charge but not a kidnapping charge since it is included under capital murder according to Texas law. The fatal shooting occurred on Tuesday in Spring.

Authorities found the woman that night where she confessed to shooting the 28 year-old woman and taking her child. Investigators found the child unharmed at her sister’s Houston apartment. The woman is a registered vocational nurse in both Texas and California.
