MADISON, Wis. (AP) - An FBI expert testifying in the trial of a Colorado woman accused of kidnapping her newborn nephew in Wisconsin and abandoning him in freezing temperatures says visits to fake pregnancy belly websites were found on computers seized from the woman's home.

Testimony began Monday in the federal kidnapping trial of Kristen Smith, of Aurora, Colorado.

The Wisconsin State Journal reports FBI forensic computer examiner Kelly Kolecheck testified that other websites visited by Smith's computer offered advice on how to get a birth certificate for a newborn and how to breastfeed an adopted baby.

Prosecutors argue that Smith kidnapped days-old Kayden Powell from the Town of Beloit home where his parents were staying in February. The baby was later found alive in a tote behind a gas station in Iowa.
