UNION, Mo. (AP) _ Attorneys for the Franklin County woman accused in last year's kidnapping of a baby and attack on the baby's mother today are expected to ask a judge for a change of venue.
Thirty-seven-year-old Shannon Torrez is accused of slashing the throat of Stephanie Oschenbine and kidnapping Oschenbine's 10-day-old daughter, Abby Woods, last September.
Defense attorneys are also expected to seek a second mental evaluation.
Torrez is charged with kidnapping, assault, armed criminal action, burglary and other charges. If convicted, she could spend the rest of her life in prison.
