Buying a Baby, On a Payment Plan

Two West Texas women, a mother, 29-year-old Joana Delacruz Huerta, and  27-year-old Marilu Munoz had a rather odd business agreement.

Huerta was to sell her seven week old baby for only $2000 to Munoz, on an installment plan.

Yes, Baby payments.

The two were found out via an anonymous tip, and that a couple of payments had already occurred after the sale took place in September.

The baby has been taken into custody and is with a foster family, and the two women were charged Thursday with the sale or purchase of an infant, a third-degree felony.
