Two Women Charged With Buying/Selling Infant
Abilene police say two women have been arrested for working out a payment plan for the purchase of a 7-week-old infant. The Associated Press reports that 29-year-old Joana Delacruz Huerta allegedly allowed 27-year-old Marilu Munoz to purchase the child for $2,000 to be paid in installments.
They were arrested and charged Thursday. The selling or purchase of an infant is a third degree felony, and the two could face up to ten years in prison and $10,000 in fines.
