Woman indicted in newborn's kidnapping

Posted: Updated:
MADISON, Wis. (KWWL) -
A woman accused of kidnapping a newborn and transporting him across state lines will now be moved to Wisconsin to stand before a judge there.
Kristen Smith faces a maximum sentence of life in prison after a federal grand jury in Madison, Wisconsin indicted her for the kidnapping of Kayden Powell.
Smith's indictment has been expected since the FBI filed a criminal complaint accusing her of the February kidnapping.
Federal authorities will now move her from Iowa to Wisconsin for a scheduled court appearance on Friday.
