Judge: Jailed mom can't go to toddler Elaina Steinfurth's funeral

TOLEDO, Ohio - An Ohio woman charged with obstruction won't be allowed to leave jail for the funeral of her toddler, who was missing for months before her remains were found in a garage.

A county judge in Toledo on Wednesday rejected Angela Steinfurth's request to visit a funeral home and privately pay her last respects. Steinfurth's attorney told The Blade newspaper she couldn't immediately comment on the ruling.

A visitation for 19-month-old Elaina Steinfurth is scheduled Friday at a funeral home in the city of Oregon. The funeral is Saturday.

The cause of her death hasn't been determined.

Angela Steinfurth and a man she had been dating are charged with obstructing official business in the girl's disappearance. The remains were found this month in a garage that belongs to the man's family.
