THORNTON - A mother accused of kidnapping her daughter in April, is expected to face a judge Tuesday.
Just after 9 a.m. on April 30, the child's grandmother told police the biological mother, Meshelle Branch,21, and Robert Owens,28, forced her way into the apartment and took her 22-month-old daughter.
At the time the grandmother had an active protection order prohibiting Branch from her residence and other stipulations of no contact.
The child suffers from a potentially life-threatening medical condition that required she be found quickly.
An Amber Alert was issued at 12:45 p.m. and the two suspects turned themselves into police at 1:34 p.m.
The little girl was taken to the hospital and medically cleared following the event.
The charges are violation of protection order, first-degree criminal trespass and child abuse.
