    A woman accused of fleeing with her daughter to Central America in a custody dispute 10 years ago has been sent back to jail to await trial in New Hampshire.

    Genevieve Kelley returned to New Hampshire last month to face a custodial interference charge in Coos County but won't say where her daughter is. She says 18-year-old daughter Mary Nunes is safe.

    Kelley had been free on bail. But a judge on Thursday re-set her bail at $250,000 cash after prosecutors raised questions about whether she has failed to turn over passports she may hold in other names.

    The judge didn't rule on the prosecutor's request to order that Nunes be brought out of hiding but said he doesn't have the authority to force her to undergo a psychological evaluation.
