MCSO Press Conference Regarding Murder/Kidnapping in SMC

At a Wednesday afternoon press conference at the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, officials offered more details regarding the murder of a Spring woman and the abduction of her 3-day-old infant.

Those speaking at the press conference included District Attorney Brett Ligon, Sheriff Tommy Gage, Criminal Investigations Division Captain Bruce Zenor, and Lt. Dan Norris.

Investigators now say Verna McClain acted alone in the murder and abduction, and her motive pertained to her relationship with a man. Police say McClain was pregnant with her fiancées child and recently miscarried. She apparently intended to replace her lost baby with Keegan Schuchardt and convince her fiancée the child was theirs.

McClain has been charged with Capital Murder.
