(KMOV) –The mother of slain Hailey Owens on Thursday talked to the media for the first time since authorities located her daughter’s body in the basement of a Springfield teacher.

Stacey Owens said her 10-year-old daughter was going to see a friend when she was pulled into a vehicle on Tuesday evening in a Springfield neighborhood.

Police say they later found Hailey's body in two trash bags in the home of 45-year-old Craig Michael Wood. 

Wood was charged with first-degree murder for the fatal shooting death of Owens. He is scheduled to be in court on Friday.
