AUSTIN, Texas - The first court hearing for Magen Fieramusca was this morning. Fieramusca is charged in connection to the death of Heidi Broussard.
The hearing was originally scheduled for last month but was postponed. Fieramusca was not present but her attorneys were there.
Fieramusca is now charged with capital murder and was indicted last week. She's accused of kidnapping Broussard and Broussard's baby and then killing Broussard.
At first Fieramusca was charged with only kidnapping and tampering with a corpse.
Authorities say Fieramusca was plotting to kidnap Broussard's baby and passing the child off as her own.
According to Austin police, the two were last seen on December 12 after Broussard dropped her son off at school. When Broussard's boyfriend discovered Broussard and her daughter missing he called police and an extensive search throughout Texas began.
Investigators later found the baby unharmed seven days after she was first reported missing. Broussard's body was found in the trunk of a car outside Fieramusca's home in Houston.
