Kidnapping charges were filed against an Alabama girl’s mother and three other women who are accused of trying to take the child to Ohio.

Jasmine Crutchfield, 22; Deanna Gentry, 21; Sierra Hill, 33; and India Washington, 24, were expected to be transported from a Kentucky jail to face charges in Alabama, reported Monday. A court date has been set for June 5.

Miy’Angel Crutchfield, 6, was found with the group near Elizabethtown, Kentucky, on Saturday afternoon. She had been taken from Centreville, Alabama, on Saturday morning.

Jasmine Crutchfield is the child’s mother but does not have custody and had been ordered not to have contact with the girl, Bibb County District Attorney Michael Jackson said.

All four suspects live in Ohio and authorities said the group was headed to Cincinnati. It’s unclear whether they had attorneys who could speak on their behalf.
