Kid­nap­ping rap for mom

Toronto Sun - - NEWS -

WI­CHITA, Kan. — A wo­man ac­cused of flee­ing Kansas and tak­ing her chil­dren to Rus­sia amid a di­vorce has been charged with in­ter­na­tional parental kid­nap­ping.

Fed­eral pros­e­cu­tors say a grand jury on Wed­nes­day in­dicted 37-year-old Bog­dana Alexan­drovna Mob­ley. She was ar­rested last month in Wi­chita but in­ves­ti­ga­tors be­lieve her three chil­dren re­main in Rus­sia.

Pros­e­cu­tors say she left the U.S. three years ago with one child from her first mar­riage and an­other child from a sec­ond mar­riage. She gave birth to a third child about two months af­ter re­turn­ing to Rus­sia.

Pros­e­cu­tors say she al­lowed her ex-hus­band to com­mu­ni­cate with the chil­dren, but he wasn’t al­lowed to see them when he flew to meet her on the border of Poland and Rus­sia in 2015.

She em­i­grated to the U.S. in 2003 and later be­came a nat­u­ral­ized U.S. cit­i­zen.
