Nurse accused in fatal baby abduction in court

Texas nurse accused of killing mother, abducting newborn appears in court; held without bond By The Associated Press

CONROE, Texas (AP) ' A nurse accused of fatally shooting a new mother and speeding away with the dying woman's infant son has quietly told a Texas judge that she understands she's facing capital murder charges.

Verna McClain made her initial court appearance Thursday. She's accused of shooting 28-year-old Kala Golden in the parking lot of a suburban Houston pediatric clinic and snatching Golden's 3-day-old son.

The infant was later found safe.

Handcuffed and wearing a pink and white striped prison uniform, McClain spoke softly and looked down during the brief hearing.

The judge delayed her bond hearing until Monday to give McCain's court-appointed attorneys more time to work on the case. She's being held without bond.

Investigators say the 38-year-old McClain had suffered a miscarriage and was reportedly desperate to find a child.
