A woman accused of killing a New Boston, TX, mother so she could steal her unborn baby has been indicted by a Bowie County grand jury for a second count of capital murder.
A grand jury indicted Taylor Rene Parker, 28, in December for capital murder in the death of Reagan Hancock, 21, and for kidnapping for taking her unborn child. Thursday morning Parker was indicted for a second count of capital murder in the baby’s death.
Bowie County District Attorney Jerry Rochelle said at a hearing earlier this year that his office will seek the death penalty for Parker.
Parker allegedly attacked Reagan Hancock at her home in New Boston on the morning of October 9. Parker was stopped by a Texas state trooper near DeKalb at 9:37 a.m., according to a probable cause affidavit.
