Woman pleads guilty to killing mom, abducting baby

CONROE, TX (TIP): A Houston woman accused of killing a mother and abducting her newborn son last year avoided a possible death sentence by pleading guilty Tuesday, November 19, and accepting a sentence of life without parole. Verna McClain, 32, was awaiting trial on a capital murder charge for fatally shooting the new mother outside a pediatric clinic in the Houston suburb of Spring and snatching her 3-day-old son. Montgomery County prosecutors had said they would seek the death penalty against McClain for the April 2012 slaying of 28-year-old Kala Golden- Schuchardt. The infant was found hours later safe with McClain’s sister, who told authorities McClain intended to adopt the child.
