ELLICOTT CITY, Md. (AP) — Howard County police say a 23-year-old woman who was arrested for abducting a friend’s 16-month-old child in Columbia has been released without prosecution.
Tiara Monique Williams was arrested Thursday afternoon in Suitland at the home of a relative. Police say the toddler’s mother reported the abduction.
But on Friday, Howard County police said Williams was once the mother’s long-time domestic partner and she had taken part in raising the child since birth.
Williams was released from police custody on Friday.
