MADISON, Neb. (AP) - The case of a woman accused of kidnapping her newborn son from a hospital earlier this month has been sent on to felony court.

The Norfolk Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/2agVNGB ) that 34-year-old Lacee Tuttle, of Pierce, is set to be arraigned in Madison County District Court on Aug. 19.

Tuttle is charged with kidnapping her 2-day-old son from Faith Regional Health Services in Norfolk on July 10. The baby’s disappearance from the hospital triggered a statewide Amber Alert. The baby and Tuttle were found hours later.

Officials say the infant had been removed from Tuttle’s custody after his birth and placed in the care of the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services for safety reasons.

Tuttle remained jailed Wednesday and could not be reached for comment.
