SOUTH SALT LAKE, Utah (ABC4) – Almost two weeks after triggering an AMBER Alert, a mother and grandmother are set to make their first court appearance on Tuesday.

Murillo-Alvarez, the grandmother of the two children, was arrested on two counts of child kidnapping and two counts of obstruction of justice.
