Mother who Helped Hide Fugitive Son Cops Plea

Canton, OH - The mother of a murder suspect went before a judge Monday to plea to lesser charges.

Officials say Colenne Daniels helped hide her fugitive son, Craig, in the yard of her Nimishillen Township home after he allegedly killed two people in Bowling Green.

The 58-year-old pleaded no contest to charges of attempted obstructing justice and obstructing official business.

Prosecutors tell 19 Action News they reduced the obstructing justice charge from a third-degree felony to a fourth-degree felony.

Daniels could face up to 18-months behind bars - she will be sentenced next month.
