10 Years For Baby Kidnapping

In Union County, a woman from rural Anna will see ten years in prison for kidnapping a newborn baby.

Karen S. Nichols, 44, pleaded guilty Tuesday to one count of kidnapping and one count of armed robbery.

Police say Nichols became friends with a woman through Facebook. Then one day in June, Nichols held the mother at knifepoint, tied her up and stole her newborn child.

The baby was returned to the mother unharmed.
