The Lubbock District Attorney's office has formally filed felony charges against accused kidnapper Stephanie Jones.
Jones is accused of taking Priscilla Maldonado, from her parents home, just days after she was born. A day after an Amber Alert was issued, a tip led police to Jones who then showed police where she left Priscilla.
We learned Monday, that in her statement to police, Jones confessed to the kidnapping, but also said she wanted to give the baby back. That's why she says she went to the Savoy Condominiums. Jones claims she asked a woman in the parking lot to call police and tell them where the baby was. But police say, Jones did not wait to see what happened, instead she drove home and left the baby Priscilla outside in 100-degree heat.
Jones is charged with kidnapping and child endangerment. The case will now go to a Lubbock County Grand Jury. Jones remains in the Lubbock County Jail on a $150,000 bond.
