Judge denies bond for nurse accused in baby theft

— A judge has denied bond for a nurse accused of fatally shooting a young mother in suburban Houston to kidnap the woman’s newborn son.

Verna McClain did not speak at a Monday bond hearing in Conroe, Texas.

Montgomery County District Attorney Brett Ligon argued the 30-year-old nurse committed a cold, calculated and premeditated murder.

Defense attorney E. Tay Bond had asked for a bond of $100,000 or less for McClain.

The shooting last week outside a pediatric center north of Houston killed 28-year-old Kala Golden. Her 3-day-old son was abducted but found safe hours later with McClain’s sister.

Investigators believe McClain was desperate for a baby after suffering a miscarriage.
