Yesenia Sesmas

Yesenia Sesmas is accused of fatally shooting Laura Abarca-Nogueda in Kansas in late 2016, and then taking her six-day-old baby Sophia. Sesmas allegedly told police in Dallas she had a miscarriage, and never told anyone she lost the baby. In a jailhouse interview in 2016, Sesmas said that the victim had agreed to turn over her newborn daughter, but backed out of the deal at the last moment. Sesmas allegedly admitted to killing Abarca-Nogueda but said she did not mean to. She said she threatened the victim with a gun when it accidentally discharged.
