HOUSTON -- Houston nurse Verna McClain appeared in court Thursday after her arrest in this week's shooting death of a new mother outside a suburban pediatrician's office. The woman's 3-day-old infant son was taken in the attack. McClain, 30, wearing a pink-and white-striped jumpsuit, was asked by the judge if she understood the capital murder charge against her. She replied: "Yes, sir.
