NEWTON, NC (WBTV) - The stepmother of a dead Hickory girl is now facing even more charges as she sits in the Catawba County Jail.
Elisa Baker, who led authorities to the dismembered body of 10-year-old Zahra Baker, was hit with another worthless check charge this week. Also, on Friday, she was served with a bigamy indictment while she was in her jail cell Friday morning.
Elisa Baker, 42, is in the Catawba County Jail on several worthless check charges and on a charge for obstruction of justice, for allegedly writing a fake ransom note when Zahra went missing in early October, police have said.
She was scheduled to appear in court on Friday, but instead had the bigamy charge served to her while she was in jail and $10,000 more added to her bond.
The latest worthless check charge – from Catawba County – is now also added to the other 6 "simple worthless check" charges against Baker.
This was an active week in the Zahra Baker case: Eliza Baker was already indicted this week for bigamy after police said she was not divorced from a man before being married to Zahra's father, Adam Baker is the summer of 2008. (Read the story about the bigamy indictment)
