WICHITA, KS (AP) -

A Dallas woman accused of faking a pregnancy, killing a friend in Kansas and stealing her baby will soon learn what charges she will face.

Prosecutors in Kansas say a final charging decision will be announced Tuesday morning. Yesenia Sesmas is jailed in Dallas on a Kansas warrant.

Sesmas told KUVN-TV of Dallas-Fort Worth that Laura Abarca-Nogueda had agreed to turn over her newborn daughter to her but reneged on the agreement. In the interview in the Dallas County jail, the 34-year-old woman admitted that she killed Abarca-Nogueda in Wichita but said she didn't mean to.

Abarca-Nogueda's boyfriend found her body Thursday and a frantic search ensued for the missing 6-day-old baby, Sophia. She was found Saturday in Dallas and has been reunited with family members.
