IDABEL, Okla. (AP) — A woman suspected of killing a pregnant woman and removing the baby from the victim’s womb appeared in an Oklahoma courtroom Tuesday and waived extradition to Texas.
Taylor Parker, 27, of Simms, Texas, appeared in McCurtain County District Court and agreed to be sent to Bowie County, Texas, said Brooke Arbeitman, spokeswoman for the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation.
Parker is wanted in Texas for the death of 21-year-old Reagan Simmons-Hancock, who was found dead Friday with her baby removed from her body. The baby also died.
Arbeitman said she did not know if Parker had an attorney who could speak on her behalf. She said Parker is jailed in Idabel, about 190 miles (306 kilometers) southeast of Oklahoma City.
