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.
TOLEDO, Ohio - The mother of a 1-year-old Ohio girl missing for three weeks has been charged with obstruction of justice.
Multiple media outlets reported that a grand jury brought the charge against Angela Steinfurth on Monday.
The indictment came as a June 12 child endangering charge against the 25-year-old Steinfurth was dismissed Monday in Toledo Municipal Court.
A dive team last week searched the Maumee River for Steinfurth's daughter, Elaina Steinfurth, who was last seen June 2.
Investigators say Angela Steinfurth knew her daughter had been seriously injured but the mother didn't seek medical help. They would not say what type of injuries the baby had or who they believe caused them.
A message was left with the Municipal Court's public offender office, which previously represented Angela Steinfurth.
A funeral is planned Saturday for the northwest Ohio toddler who was missing for months before her skeletal remains were found inside a box in the rafters of a garage.
Human remains found in a box in the rafters of a garage are those of a toddler last seen about three months ago inside a house on the same property, police said Tuesday.
