Judge Sets Hearing Date In Lena Lunsford Case

WHEELING, W.Va. (AP) - A judge will hear arguments later this month on a plan to move the mother of a missing Aliayah Lunsford from Wheeling to the Clarksburg area, where Lena Lunsford says she's a "social pariah."
U.S. District Judge John Preston Bailey has scheduled a hearing for May 23 in Wheeling.
Lunsford was freed from prison after serving eight months for welfare fraud and placed on one year of supervised release. Probation officials now want to move her.
Lunsford opposes the move. She's been living at a YWCA, attending West Virginia Business College and working at a pizza shop. Public defender Brian Kornbrath also says she's pregnant with her eighth child.
Three-year-old Aliayah Lunsford vanished in 2011 in Lewis County. Authorities have never found her or arrested anyone.

We have to spay and neuter our "pets"- what about her? All her children taken away and she's allowed to get pregnant again? What is wrong with our justice system? She should have forced sterilization.

This woman thinks she is a breeding machine. Surely they will not let her keep this baby either. She has literally lost one baby and has had the other 6 removed, and 2 of those where a matter of months old. What about birth control doesn't she understand. She will no doubt put this child at risk just like the rest!
