Newborn kidnapping suspect in court today

UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  A woman accused of kidnapping a Beloit area baby returns to court today in Tipton, Iowa. A judge will decide if 31-year-old Kristen Smith should be extradited to Texas, to face charges of tampering with government records. Authorities said Smith took five-day-old Kayden Powell from her half-sister near Beloit last Thursday. Smith was later stopped on a freeway at West Branch Iowa, where she was held on the Texas warrant pending an investigation into the alleged baby-napping.

She denied knowing where Kayden was. Police found him a day later behind a gas station close to where Smith was pulled over.

She faces a federal kidnapping charge, but U-S Marshals have not taken her into custody yet. Smith remains in an Iowa jail for now. Yesterday a prosecutor in Tipton charged Smith on a state count of child endangerment.
