BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont judge has jailed a woman accused of making threats to her mother - a Department of Children and Families employee who is foster parenting her children - in an ongoing custody dispute.

The Burlington Free Press reports (https://bfpne.ws/1L5anvk ) that a federal magistrate Thursday ordered 34-year-old Jamie Ransom of Waterbury held without bail pending her trial on a charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

The judge said he was concerned that Ransom decided to go out and buy a rifle four days after an adverse ruling in family court in July.

Ransom allegedly told her mother if she wasn’t careful she’d wind up like Lara Sobel - the DCF worker gunned down in August as she left her office.

Ransom’s lawyer said her remarks were taken out of context.
