Leeanna Brown, a 24-year-old mother in Kentucky, allegedly tried selling her newborn baby daughter. Not once, but twice. How does that work, exactly?
She first tried selling her baby for $5,000 to an unnamed person, but the deal fell apart. The second time, Brown gave the baby to Luonda Martin, her cousin.
As part of the alleged deal, Brown wanted Martin to pay her court costs and fines for another case she had pending, local station WAVE 3 News reports.
It has not been confirmed whether Martin paid Brown, but the bizarre case has taken another twist as now the biological mother wants the infant back.
Tuesday, Martin showed up at a local police station and told cops that she had been under the impression Brown had given her custody of the child.
