It was reported on Feb 19, 2013 that an East Texas jury convicted two women on Tuesday for kidnapping a boy from Houston and hiding him for eight years.
The boy was just 8 months old in 2004 when he was kidnapped and he was found after being hidden for eight years.
The jurors deliberated for two hours and found the mother and daughter Gloria Walker and Krystle Tanner, guilty of kidnapping Miguel Morin.
Walker was also found guilty for causing injury to a child and Tanner of reckless injury to a child. The jury will now hear evidence and decide the sentences.
While Walker has a possibility of up to a lifetime in prison, Tanner could be sentenced to 20 years imprisonment.
The prosecution told jury that Tanner used to babysit Miguel. She took the boy from his apartment complex in Houston and moved with the boy along with her mother from Central and East Texas. She renamed him Jaquan to avoid detection and kept him out of school
Tanner was caught by authorities when they began investigating her as her newborn son in tested positive for marijuana.
They determined later that she had the missing boy and thus Tanner along with her mother Walker were arrested in March 2012.
