HCM City — A 30-year-old domestic helper and her boyfriend were sentenced to 13 and 11 years in jail for kidnapping a month-old baby from a family in HCM City for ransom, according to the municipal People's Court.

Last September, the couple colluded with each other to take the baby while she was sleeping and her parents were cleaning their home upstairs.

They then sent text messages to the parents via an unknown phone number asking for a ransom of 50 ounces of gold in return for the baby. The parents secretly informed the police who arrested the kidnappers and returned the baby.-VNS
