Magen Fieramusca to plead guilty, expected to be sentenced to 55 years in death of friend, kidnapping of baby


AUSTIN (KXAN) — The woman accused of killing an Austin friend and kidnapping her 3-week-old baby in December 2019 is expected to enter a guilty plea during her next court appearance on Jan. 31, her attorneys told KXAN Tuesday.

In exchange for the plea agreement, the attorneys for Magen Fieramusca said they expect a sentence of 55 years in prison.

Fieramusca was charged with capital murder in January 2020 in the death of Heidi Broussard.

The Defense and Prosecution have come to a negotiated agreement, and we expect a sentence of 55 years in prison from the Court this coming Tuesday, [Jan. 31]. As charged, Ms. Fieramusca was looking at life without the possibility of parole. After considerable discussion, in conjunction with significant compelling mitigation related to Ms. Fieramusca and the possible appellate issues related to the search of her residence, both parties feel that this is the appropriate resolution. I imagine many have questions that will never be adequately answered, nevertheless, I hope that this plea brings some closure to this family’s great loss.

Brian Erskine, Fieramusca’s defense attorney

Complete coverage of the case

Broussard was found dead in the trunk of a car near a home in Jersey Village, Texas in December 2019. Broussard’s baby, who was three weeks old at the time, was found alive in good condition.

According to an arrest affidavit, “Magen Fieramusca presented Heidi Broussard’s Newborn Child as her own to her boyfriend.”

Police went on a week-long search for Broussard and her baby, including sending an Amber Alert after the two disappeared in 2019. On Dec. 20, 2019 Texas State Troopers and Texas Rangers approached a home where Fieramusca lived. Broussard’s body was found in a duffel bag in the trunk of the car, which was registered to Fieramusca. The baby was safe inside.
