A woman who faked a pregnancy for several months was found guilty on Tuesday of killing her former co-worker and kidnapping the victim's newborn baby with the intent to raise the child as her own.
Yesenia Sesmas, 36, an illegal immigrant who was living in Dallas at the time, drove to Wichita, Kan. to shoot 27-year-old Laura Abarca on Nov. 17, 2016, and kidnap 6-day-old Sophia Gonzales. The baby was found safe two days later in Sesmas' Dallas apartment and was returned to relatives.
Jurors deliberated for less than three hours on Tuesday and found Sesmas guilty of first-degree premeditated and intentional murder, kidnapping and interference with parental custody.
Sesmas was in the country illegally and was arrested the summer before the killing for threatening another Wichita woman and trying to hold the womans two daughters for ransom. But she was mistakenly released from custody because of a bureaucratic mix-up.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said at the time it did not receive the July 25 list of arrests from the Sedgwick County sheriff's office showing Yesenia Sesmas' name on it until the following day, and by that time she had already been released from local custody.

More of the gorgeous mosaic.
Ah, but John McCain says Americans kill too, so no need to get worked up about something like this.

Kill the bitch and then send her home.
Diversity. Again. I miss the rule of law - back when this criminal would have been deported before the murder.
just stealing the babies Americans won’t steal.
We really need to bring back Old Sparky.
Anything less than a swift death penalty is not justice served.
Yesenia Sesmas and Laura Abarca...
What the hell? Is this Dallas and Wichita Iraq?
What the hell happening to this nation?
Are there any actually long term citizens left here?
did she really kill a “Kansas mom”? Sounds like two Mexican illegals in a crime that should have happened in Oaxaca or somewhere.
I wonder what happens to her? Does she do time, then get deported, or does she get deported?
Wheres Mr. Gonzales?
Muzzie or Latino?
Not that I routinely watch the local news—but I have heard no mention of the killers immigration status on tv or local radio. Puzzling?
Democrats and RINOs approve of the murder of this new mother.
