Sophia Richter scheduled to make appearance in court

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) –A Tucson mother accused of holding her daughters in their home against their will is expected to be back in court.

Sophia Richter is scheduled to be back in superior court this morning for a pre-trial status conference hearing. She faces several counts of kidnapping and child abuse charges.

It's now been about seven months since we learned about Sophia and her husband, Fernando. They're accused of holding three of Sophia's daughters captive for roughly two years inside their homes in Tucson and Catalina.

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

We’ll be in court and let you know what comes next for this Tucson mother.
