TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A Tucson mother charged with holding three sisters captive was back in court on Friday.

A judge has not set a trial date for Sophia Richter, but he set another hearing for late next month.

Police said she and her husband Fernando Richter kept the sisters in dungeon-like isolation for two years.

The girls escaped their midtown home and got help from a neighbor.

Both parents are charged with kidnapping and child abuse.
