Mother, son free on bail in child custody case

Published 11:46 pm Friday, September 11, 2015

A Vicksburg woman and her son were free on bail after arrest by U.S. Marshals Friday morning in child custody case.

Kathryn Loyacono, 66, and her son Sean Edwards, were arrested Friday by the marshal’s office at about 8:30 a.m. Friday after indictment by a federal grand jury for paternal interference in child custody.

A family member said the case was filed in federal court in Arizona, but a reporter for this newspaper could not locate the case in federal court records. Because the case involves child custody, it is likely sealed and not available for public viewing.
