Sheriff: Suspect In Newborn Kidnapping In Own Cell

IOWA CITY, IA -

An Iowa sheriff says he's jailing a woman suspected of kidnapping a baby apart from the general population for safety reasons.

Cedar County Sheriff Warren Wethington said Monday that 31-year-old Kristen R. Smith of Denver is in her own cell at the county jail in Tipton, Iowa.

He says he didn't feel comfortable holding Smith with other female inmates who had seen media coverage of the allegations against her.

Smith was charged with kidnapping Friday after the police chief in West Branch, Iowa discovered missing Wisconsin newborn Kayden Powell, alive and well despite being in freezing temperatures for up to 29 hours.

The FBI alleges Smith took the boy from her half-sister's home and left him in a plastic crate outside a gas station before she was arrested Thursday.
