Mother accused of 2004 kidnapping of child released on bail

The Associated Press

NORTH HAVERHILL - A woman who turned herself in to authorities a decade after fleeing with her 8-year-old daughter during a custody dispute has been released on $50,000 cash bail.

Genevieve Kelley, of Whitefield, disappeared with her daughter, Mary, into Central America in 2004 after her attempt to prove her ex-husband harmed the child backfired.

Shortly after her daughter turned 18 in February and was no longer subject to the family court, the 50-year-old Kelley made contact. Her lawyer said she wants to face trial on her custodial interference charge. She said her daughter is safe; authorities aren't sure where she is.

Police felt Kelley's ex-husband, Mark Nunes, was unfairly accused. He was never charged with a crime.

Kelley was released from jail Friday. She's not allowed to have contact with her daughter.
