LAKEVILLE, Minn. (AP) - Additional felony charges have been filed against the mother of two teenage girls from southeastern Minnesota accused of hiding the girls for more than two years.

An amended criminal complaint filed in Dakota County says Sandra Grazzini-Rucki drove her daughters to a western Minnesota horse ranch and left them there until they were found last week. Gianna and Samantha Rucki, now 16 and 17 years old respectively, had been missing since April 2013.

The girls’ father, who is divorced from their mother, has full custody. The Star Tribune (https://strib.mn/1XlShqQ ) reports Grazzini-Rucki is charged with three additional counts of deprivation of parental rights, along with three other counts filed earlier.

A notice filed in court by prosecutors says David Rucki has “suffered extreme emotional pain” as a result of the girls’ disappearance.
