SAN DIEGO, Calif. (AP) - A San Diego judge has refused bail for a woman accused of killing an 18-year-old whose bones were found years later in an avocado grove.
The judge ruled Monday that 52-year-old Seferina Ponce Marquez is a flight risk and a danger to society.
The Redlands woman is charged with killing her tenant, Sarah Reyes. The 18-year-old vanished in 1994, leaving behind an infant son.
Police say Ponce was long considered a person of interest in the disappearance but there was no proof of a crime until 2008. That's when dental records confirmed that skeletal remains found eight years earlier were those of the missing woman.
Ponce was charged with murder in San Bernardino County but the case was dismissed and refiled in San Diego County, where the remains were found.
