Woman Who Allegedly Kidnapped Newborn and Killed Child's Mom Faked Pregnancy Beforehand: Cops
She reportedly also knew the mother for several years.
Police said the woman who's accused of snatching a week-old infant and killing the child's mother in Kansas had faked her pregnancy before the gruesome crime.
Baby Sofia, now 10 days old, was found alive and safe in Dallas, Texas, on Saturday and has since been reunited with her family in Kansas.
Yesenia Sesmas, 34, reportedly knew 27-year-old Laura Nogueda-Abarca, who was shot to death last week, for a few years, according to police.
“Detectives learned that Sesmas had faked a pregnancy over the last several months,” said Detective Todd Ojile of the Wichita Police Department.
Police didn’t elaborate on any more details of the relationship.
Nogueda-Abarca’s boyfriend, the baby’s father, found the mom murdered and baby Sofia missing when he returned home from work last Thursday afternoon.
Three other people in the home in Dallas were taken down to a police station for questioning after Sesmas’ arrest. However, they reportedly knew nothing of her scheme.
Sesmas will be extradited to Kansas to face charges, according to reports.
