One of two women accused of kidnapping in jail had court appearance

UPDATE: 2:00 p.m.: ABC 17 News was in court Friday afternoon and learned Nia Boldridge is an alias for Mackenzie Nakole Quiovers.

According to prosecutors, Quiovers gave false information to authorities when she was questioned after a car crash on Tuesday afternoon.

The prosecution said Nia Boldridge and Nia McCoy — McCoy was a name listed on the Missouri State Highway Patrol crash report — are known aliases Quiovers has used in the past.

Quiovers was formally charged with three counts of felony kidnapping. Probable cause statements say she prevented the Missouri Department of Social Services from maintaining custody of the three children who were involved the crash.

Her next court appearance will be on March 31.

ORIGINAL STORY: One of two women accused of kidnapping children is now in the Boone County jail.

ABC 17 News checked arrest records Friday morning and found Nia Boldridge is listed as an inmate.

Jail records show she was booked in to the jail around 7:40 Thursday night and is being held on a $300,000 bond.

Boldridge and another woman, Demetres Washington, are charged with kidnapping after they allegedly abducted Washington’s three children Tuesday afternoon and later crashing.

All five people in the vehicle at the time were hurt, including one person who was critically injured.

ABC 17 News reported that both women were charged on Wednesday and warrants were issued for their arrest.

It’s possible police have not arrested Washington yet because she remains hospitalized. A crash report shows her injuries from the wreck were considered serious.

Boldridge is scheduled to make her first appearance in court Friday at 1:30 p.m.
