WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A prosecutor says he has filed charges against a Dallas woman accused of killing a friend in Kansas and stealing her newborn daughter.
District Attorney Marc Bennett didn’t specify the charges that have been filed against Yesenia Sesmas in Sedgwick County District Court.
Bennett said in a statement Tuesday that the complaint detailing the charges won’t be made public until Sesman makes her first appearance in court. No court date has been set.
Sesmas is being held in Texas on suspicion of first-degree murder and kidnapping in connection with the death of Laura Abarca-Nogueda in Wichita and the kidnapping of her 6-day-old baby.
Bennett says the state will notify authorities in Texas of its intent to pursue extradition, a process that could take up to 90 days.
