Bond revoked for mother of missing Jacksonville toddler
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The mother of a missing Florida toddler will remain in jail after a Jacksonville judge revoked her bond following a drug arrest.
Lonna Lauramore Barton was charged with child neglect and providing false information shortly after her 21-month-old son Lonzie Barton disappeared on July 24.
She was arrested last week, along with the child's 41-year-old father Christopher Arin Barton.
Both face multiple drug charges.
The Florida Times-Union reports Lonna Barton's defense attorney told the judge on Wednesday that there was no point contesting a motion to revoke her bond because she clearly violated the terms.
Her 32-year-old boyfriend, William Ruben Ebron Jr., remains jailed on child neglect charges stemming from the boy's disappearance.
Investigators believe the child is dead though his body hasn't been found.
