On Wednesday a woman was sentenced to death by a Bowie County jury for the 2020 murder of a pregnant woman and her unborn child.
On October 3, 29 year old Taylor Rene Parker was convicted of killing 21 year old Reagan Michelle Simmons-Hancock and her unborn child in 2020.
It was said that Parker could not conceive after having a hysterectomy but had told her boyfriend she was pregnant so he wouldn’t leave her.
She then faked her pregnancy by showing fake ultrasounds and wearing pregnancy disguises. She even went as far as throwing a gender reveal party.
Parker also researched videos on how to deliver a baby preterm.
On October 9 Parker went to Simmons- Hancock’s home and bashed her skull with a hammer before stabbing her over 100 times. She then used a scalpel ti cut the baby from her womb.
Parker fled the scene with the infant but she didn’t survive.
After Parker’s sentencing she was transferred to the Mountain View Unit in Gatesville, Texas, which is a facility for death row inmates.
