KTAL-TV reports the affidavit states that when a Texas state trooper pulled Parker over in DeKalb just after 9:30 a.m. that same morning, she had a newborn infant in her lap with “the umbilical cord was connected to the infant, which appeared to be coming out of the female's pants, as if she gave birth to the child.” The child did not survive.
Parker's bond was set at $2.5 million on a capital murder charge, $1.5 million on a murder charge, and $1 million on a kidnapping charge.
Parker had been held in Idabel, Okla. following her arrest Friday, hours after 21-year-old Reagan Simmons-Hancock was found dead inside a home on Austin Street in New Boston, Texas. Her unborn child was missing.
Parker and the baby were taken to McCurtain County Memorial Hospital, where a doctor determined she had not given birth. Attempts were made to resuscitate the baby at the hospital, but they were unsuccessful. The baby's body has been sent for an autopsy in Texas.
