Longview, Texas — A Longview woman accused of scheming to steal a baby by killing a mother with a newborn or one who was in late-term pregnancy is set for trial this month.
Tanya Lynette Bradley, 30, was arrested in June after her friends told police Bradley was lying in wait for a mother outside Good Shepherd Medical Center.
The informants told police they had shopped with Bradley for murder weapons and knew of her plans, according to information in the criminal complaint for her arrest.
They said Bradley planned to find the mother of a newborn at Good Shepherd and kill her for her infant.
Bradley was arrested and charged with two counts of criminal attempt to commit capital murder.
Her trial has been set to begin at 9 a.m. April 15 in the 124th District Court at the Gregg County Courthouse.
