The woman charged with kidnapping a baby is about to be sent back from Iowa to Wisconsin where the crime originally started.

The woman, 31-year-old Kristen Smith, is accused to taking her five-day-old nephew from his home in Beloit, Wisconsin.  Smith was arrested in West Branch, Iowa but without her nephew.

The baby was discovered the next day, just a few hundred feet from where Smith was arrested.  The child was unharmed and returned back to his mother.

Smith will be transferred to federal custody on Friday, and will then be taken back to Wisconsin.
