SAN AUGUSTINE, TX (KTRE) -

San Augustine County officials have released the second woman suspected in connection to a 2004 kidnapping from jail due to health reasons.

Sheriff's Office Chief Deputy Gary Cunningham said Gloria Jean Walker was released due to her hospital needs, a responsibility the county could not afford.

Cunningham said Walker is required to report to the county probation department every week.

Walker's daughter, Krystle Tanner, 26, was released in May because she is pregnant and the county could not afford to take on that liability.

Both are charged with in the 2004 kidnapping of a then eight-month-old baby who Tanner was babysitting. Tanner allegedly fled with the baby and for eight years, their whereabouts were unknown.

Last August, CPS was called out to Tanner's residence after the agency received a call from someone claiming Tanner and her boyfriend was neglecting a newborn baby. The caller then told officials that they remembered a boy, approximately eight years of age, living in the home as well.

Walker is accused of assisting Tanner in the kidnapping.
