UNION, Mo. (AP) A woman who slashed a young mother and kidnapped her newborn entered into a plea deal Friday, and the prosecutor revealed additional details of the 2006 attack including that the victim was stabbed repeatedly and her toddler son was tied up.
Shannon Torrez, 38, of Lonedell, Mo., entered an Alford plea to one count each of child kidnapping, armed criminal action and first-degree assault. Under the arrangement, she does not admit guilt but concedes there is sufficient evidence for a guilty verdict.
Prosecutors are seeking a 30-year prison sentence. Sentencing testimony is set to begin May 27.
