Due to a plea bargin, Fieramusca was found guilty of first degree murder of her “best friend” in a depraved scheme to abduct her newborn baby and call the infant her own.

DA José Garza said, “We are hopeful that this outcome will bring some closure to the Broussard and Carey families and help them continue their healing process.”

“This outcome will save the families from having to endure the difficult post-conviction litigation process. We are grateful to our prosecutors and law enforcement partners who worked tirelessly on this case and secured justice for the victim’s families and our community.”

First, sources claimed Fieramusca showed up in the hospital to hold Broussard’s hand while she was in labor, growing somber and quickly leaving.

Second, just 3 weeks after giving birth, Broussard and baby Margot disappeared from their home on Dec. 12, 2019.

Third, a search for Broussard led police to the home of Fieramusca where they found Broussard and her baby.

And thankfully, Margot was found unharmed and returned to her father.

Finally, an autopsy revealed the cause of death as ligature strangulation by a dog leash.

Subsequently, the DA intially charged Fieramusca with capital murder before pleading out.

“On January 31, the District Attorney’s Office expects Megan [Magen] Fieramusca to plead guilty to the murder of Heidi Broussard.”

Addtionally, the DA stated that the plea involved conditions that waived Fieramusca’s right to appeal.
