Authorities say a 30-year-old woman admitted she shot a young mother and abducted her newborn son in a town near Houston.
Verna McClain is charged with capital murder in the killing of Kala Marie Golden in Spring on Tuesday. Witnesses saw the shooter repeatedly shoot Golden and drive away with her 3-day-old son, Keegan. Authorities found Keegan late Tuesday night.
According to the arrest record, McClain admitted to shooting Golden and taking Keegan to her home in Harris County. The warrant says Keegan was found at the Harris County home.
It says McClain's sister, Corina Jackson, told authorities that McClain intended to "do the adoption" now that she had Keegan.
McClain is being held without bail.
