CONROE, Texas -- A Houston woman accused of killing a mother and snatching her newborn son has been indicted on a capital murder charge.

Verna McClain is being held without bond Wednesday in the Montgomery County Jail. She was indicted Tuesday.

Prosecutors have not said whether they will seek the death penalty against the 31-year-old licensed vocational nurse. McClain has been in custody since she was arrested hours after the April 17 slaying.

McClain is accused of shooting Kala Golden-Schuchardt to death outside a baby clinic in suburban Spring and abducting Golden-Schuchardt's days-old son. The baby was found safe with a relative of McClain.

Investigators say McClain had a miscarriage and was desperate to find a baby to pass off as her own to family and friends.
