A Texas woman accused of travelling to Wichita to kidnap a newborn baby and kill her mother – is due in Sedgwick County District Court today, but not for that case. A preliminary hearing for Yesenia Sesmas is scheduled to start at 9am in front of Judge Ben Burgess courtroom. Prosecutors allege that Sesmas threatened the woman with a baseball bat last July, which was before she allegedly killed the same woman and kidnapped her newborn baby. Sesmas was jailed for that case, but posted bond and then skipped out on her court. Federal agents later found Sesmas was an illegal alien. She was arrested in Dallas after allegedly killing Laura Abarca.
