In 2019, a lady from Texas pled guilty to murdering her companion and kidnapping her young daughter.

Magen Fieramusca was sentenced to 55 years in prison after her capital murder conviction was lowered to first-degree murder as part of a plea agreement.

Who is Magen Fieramusca?

Magen Fieramusca is a convicted homicide suspect from Houston, Texas.

She made news after being arrested and accused with the murder of her childhood friend, Heidi Broussard, 33.

She was charged not only with Broussard’s murder, but also with taking her newborn baby.

According to Fox 7 Austin, Fieramusca was facing a capital murder charge, but in exchange for a guilty plea, the charge was reduced to first-degree murder.

“We are hopeful that this outcome will bring some closure to the Broussard and Carey families and help them continue their healing process,” District Attorney José Garza said.

“This outcome will save the families from having to endure the difficult post-conviction litigation process. We are grateful to our prosecutors and law enforcement partners who worked tirelessly on this case and secured justice for the victim’s families and our community.”

In February 2023, Fieramusca was sentenced to 55 years in prison and she waived her right to appeal.

What happened to Heidi Broussard?

In November 2019, Broussard gave birth to a healthy baby girl called Margot.

Fieramusca paid them a visit three weeks later at their South Austin residence.

According to police, Fieramusca strangled Broussard with a dog leash, left her body in the trunk of her car, and kidnapped Margot in an attempt to pass her off as her own during that visit.

“I think it is difficult, if not impossible to find justice and any sort of resolution to this horrendous crime,” Judge Selena Alvarenga said, via Fox 7.

“Ms. Fieramusca, the fact is that by your actions you have deprived an innocent child, an innocent baby, the opportunity of growing up with her mother next to her.

“You have destroyed an entire family. And no matter what the sentence, no matter how long, no matter how harsh, nothing can change that, nothing can make this family whole again,” Judge Alvarenga added.

The motive for the kidnapping and murder was listed as “maternal desire” by investigators.

In court, Broussard’s mother, Tammy Broussard, remembered her daughter as being “so much fun” and “so full of life.”

“She’s forever strong in the midst of all the people’s lives she touched. And she’ll live on forever,” Tammy said, via Fox 7.

“This is something I never imagined in my whole life, me and my husband.

“She was just so much fun and so full of life, and now it’s been taken from her.”

Tammy added: “Heidi’s hugs were strong, full of love. They lingered in the atmosphere. I still feel them now. She loved beyond measure, and she never gave up on anywhere. When I think of her, which is every moment, in everything I do, I ask what would Heidi do? It gives me comfort.”

The murder of Heidi Broussard made national headlines, and it will now be the subject of the Lifetime film Stolen Baby: The Murder of Heidi Broussard.

The film, starring Emily Osment and Anna Hopkins, will debut on the network on September 23, 2023, at 8 p.m. EST.

The following day, it will also be accessible for streaming.
