Verna McCain Facing Death in Texas


Verna McCain was a nurse with no previous criminal record when she shot Kala Marie Golden Schuchardt several times outside a pediatric clinic in Texas in April of this year. She took Kala’s 3 day old son, Keegan, and left her there to die.

Few details have emerged since the killing except that Verna had suffered a miscarriage and was desperately seeking a baby she could pass off as her own. The baby boy was found quickly at the home of Verna’s sister.

Texas has announced their intention to seek the death 
penalty for Verna. Her case is currently being prepared.
