COPS: Women Arrested For Buying, Selling Baby On Payment Plan!

ABILENE, Texas (CBS Houston/AP) - Two West Texas women have been arrested for allegedly buying and selling a 7-week-old infant on an installment payment plan.

Abilene police say the mother, 29-year-old Joana Delacruz Huerta, and the woman accused of buying her baby, 27-year-old Marilu Munoz, were charged Thursday with the sale or purchase of an infant, a third-degree felony.

The women remained in the Taylor County Jail on Friday. Bail has not yet been set. No attorneys were listed for either woman.

Police Sgt. Lynn Beard says Huerta reportedly sold the baby for $2,000 on an "installment plan" with scheduled payments. According to the Abilene police report, the sale of the child occurred in September.

The infant, whose gender wasn't released, was taken into custody by Child Protective Services.

If convicted, both women face a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
