AUSTIN (KXAN) — The woman accused of killing her friend and kidnapping her child in 2019 is expected to plead guilty during her next court appearance next week.
Magen Fieramuski’s lawyer told KXAN that the defense and prosecution have reached an agreement and are awaiting a 55-year prison sentence.
Heidi Broussard and her child went missing from her south Austin home in December 2019. Broussard was found dead in the trunk of a car outside a home in the Houston area. Broussard’s baby, who was 3 weeks old at the time, was found alive and in good condition. Fieramouska was charged with murder, punishable by the death of Broussard.
Broussard’s mother, Tammy, confirmed that she was informed of the verdict and will appear in court on Tuesday, January 31.
Broussard said she still doesn’t know why Magen killed her daughter, she said they were supposed to be friends.
“I have a big picture of Heidi, Shane and the kids and I will bring it and hopefully they will let me hang it in the courtroom so she can see what she did, something that will remind her that she did. Broussard said. “I don’t have any bad feelings for her, God has put my mind at ease and we just have to do it.”
The affidavit states: “Magen Fieramuska introduced Heidi Broussard’s newborn baby as her own to her boyfriend.”
Fieramuska told authorities that she gave birth to her baby at a maternity hospital in the Woodlands. When the Texas Rangers asked about the maternity hospital, Fieramuska said she couldn’t remember the center’s name, the affidavit says.
