WHO IS YESENIA SESMAS? TEXAS WOMAN SENTENCED FOR KILLING FRIEND, STEALING HER BABY

To become a mother, a Texas woman was willing to kill.

Yesenia Sesmas, 37, was convicted Tuesday of killing a friend in Kansas and kidnapping her six-day-old daughter intending to raise the baby as her own.

Sesmas shot and killed Laura Abarca in November 2016 and took her newborn baby Sophia. A SWAT team that arrested Sesmas found the baby in her care, the Wichita Eagle reported.

Sesmas faces life in prison, although Kansas law allows for the possibility of her parole after 50 years. If Sesmas is paroled, she would be delivered directly from jail to Mexico, since she immigrated to the United States illegally.
