MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A federal court trial is scheduled June 23rd in Madison for a woman accused of kidnapping her half-sister's baby boy and leaving him out in the cold in Iowa.
31-year-old Kristen Smith of suburban Denver has pleaded not guilty to a federal kidnapping charge.
Prosecutors said she took Kayden Powell from his 18-year-old mother near Beloit earlier this month, when he was only four days old.
Authorities arrested Smith a few hours later near a gas station in Iowa, where the child was found wrapped in a crate. Kayden survived despite being in frigid weather for over a full day.
