MADISON -- A federal court trial is scheduled to begin in Madison today for Kristen Smith. She's the woman accused of kidnapping her baby nephew near Beloit, and leaving him in a crate behind a gas station in Iowa in sub-zero temperatures. Prosecutors said Smith kidnapped five-day-old Kayden Powell in February and started driving to her home in Colorado. Officers arrested Smith the same day at an Interstate gas station at West Branch Iowa. The infant was not with Smith at the time -- but he was later found freezing behind another nearby gas station.
