TROY — Answering to a court summons after she fled Ohio with her 4-year-old daughter last year, a Dayton woman entered a plea of not guilty to a felony charge of interference with custody at her arraignment in common pleas court Monday.


Eva O. Villamor-Goubeaux, 38, was given a recognizance bond following her appearance in court and is scheduled for a pretrial conference June 9.


If convicted as charged of the fifth-degree felony, Villamor-Goubeaux faces up to one year in prison.


Villamor-Goubeaux fled to Las Vegas in November with her 4-year-old daughter, a Troy resident, after losing custody of the child earlier that month.


The girl was last seen by her father, Michael Goubeaux, on Nov. 24 when he returned the child to her mother after a scheduled visitation. The father was awarded custody of the child subsequent to that child exchange and Villamor-Goubeaux and the child remained missing until February.


U.S. Marshals took Villamor-Goubeaux into custody in Las Vegas for a warrant issued by the Troy Police Department on Feb. 27 and she was brought back to Miami County following an extradition hearing in Nevada.


Villamor-Goubeaux, who was working as a home health care provider in Las Vegas, was arrested without incident.


As a condition of her bond, she is to have no contact with her daughter.
