A premature baby stolen from a hospital in Little Rock, Ark., by a woman dressed as a nurse went home with his thankful parents, while a mother of four arrested with the child pleaded innocent to kidnaping. Annette Thomas-Jones and her husband, Willie, spent the night at Doctors Hospital with their son, Christopher Michael Jones, who was found in Hot Springs, 50 miles away, after a telephone tip to a hot line established after the kidnaping Nov. 1. Authorities have not disclosed what motive Acqunetta Rushon Smith, who was arrested when the child was recovered at her home, might have had in the kidnaping.
