A woman charged with international parental kidnapping for fleeing the country with 17-month-old twins will remain in jail until her trial.
A federal judge in Raleigh ruled that there is too much risk that Allison Quets would flee again if let out.
Quets is the twins' birth mother. Authorities have said she had the twins during an authorized visit the weekend before Christmas but didn't return them to their adoptive parents, Denise and Kevin Needham of Apex.
Instead, authorities say, Quets took the twins to Canada.
She was arrested there on charges of international parental kidnapping and the twins were returned to their adoptive parents.
