TEXARKANA, Texas (AP) — A woman accused of killing a pregnant Texas woman and removing the baby from the victim's womb has been moved from Oklahoma to a Texas jail. The Texas Department of Public Safety says 27-year-old Taylor Parker of Simms, Texas, was booked Wednesday into the Bi-State Detention Center in Texarkana, Texas, without bond. She has been charged with capital murder, murder and kidnapping in the death of 21-year-old Reagan Simmons-Hancock, who was found dead Friday with her baby removed from her body. The baby later died at a southeastern Oklahoma hospital.
