Parents of newborn kidnapped in Wisconsin testify they initially didn't suspect boy's aunt

The parents of a baby boy who was taken from his Wisconsin home and later found in sub-zero temperatures say they trusted the relative now accused of taking him so much that they initially didn't suspect her.

Kristen Smith of Aurora, Colorado, is charged with kidnapping 4-day-old Kayden Powell Feb. 6 and abandoning him in Iowa. The boy survived.

Smith allegedly took Kayden from her half-sister, Brianna Marshall, and her boyfriend, Bruce Powell, as they slept at Marshall's grandmother's house in the southern Wisconsin town of Beloit. Marshall and Powell both testified Tuesday.

Smith claims she had permission from Kayden's father to take the boy to Colorado.

The Wisconsin State Journal (http://bit.ly/WMixTo ) reports prosecutors plan to conclude their case Wednesday.
