Judge; Jailed Mom Can't Go To Ohio Girl's Funeral

Updated: Thursday, September 26 2013, 03:48 PM EDT

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -- An Ohio woman charged with obstruction won't be allowed to leave jail for the funeral of her toddler, who was missing for months before her remains were found in a garage.
 
A county judge in Toledo on Wednesday rejected Angela Steinfurth's request to visit a funeral home and privately pay her last respects. Steinfurth's attorney told The Blade newspaper she couldn't immediately comment on the ruling.
 
A visitation for 19-month-old Elaina Steinfurth is scheduled Friday at a funeral home in the city of Oregon. The funeral is Saturday.
 
The cause of her death hasn't been determined.
 
Angela Steinfurth and a man she had been dating are charged with obstructing official business in the girl's disappearance. The remains were found this month in a garage that belongs to the man's family.
