CORPUS CHRISTI - We've uncovered an extensive criminal history for the stepmother accused of child endangerment after the drowning death of her 6-year-old stepson near Bob Hall Pier last Friday.
Laura Day, 47, bonded out of the Nueces County jail last night following her arrest by Corpus Christi police. But authorities confirm this is not the first time she's spent some time in jail.
Her criminal history starts in California under the name of Laura Lee Feist. She was convicted of murder at the age of 17 and ended up serving six years of a 17 year sentence.
About 10 years later she pleaded guilty to bigamy in Maryland. At the time, she was using the name of Laura Lee Bush, with the alias of Laura Lee Marsden.
Also in Maryland, she was convicted of insurance fraud, arson, theft and giving a false statement to police.
Back here in Nueces County, officials are waiting on the toxicology results for six year old Taylor Syring before moving forward in their investigation.
