HOUSTON – The friend of an Austin mother who was found dead in a car near Jersey Village last month has been indicted on a capital murder charge on Tuesday, court records reveal.
Hiedi Broussard, 33, and her newborn baby daughter Margot Carey were reported missing in December. Weeks later, Broussard’s body was found in a car parked at a home near Jersey Village. Baby Margot was found alive and safe in the home and was reunited with her father, Shane.
Magen Fieramusca, 33, a friend of Broussard, was initially taken into custody on kidnapping and tampering with corpse charges. She was transferred to Travis County Jail.
A new indictment brought by a Travis County grand jury Tuesday shows Fieramusca is now accused of killing Broussard by strangling her with a leash and with her hands. Fieramusca is also accused of kidnapping baby Margot and was indicted on another kidnapping charge.
