The mother of a missing West Virginia girl will remain behind bars after violating the terms of her probation for a third time.
U.S. Magistrate James Seibert has revoked Lena Lunsford's supervised her release at the request of the federal probation office.
Seibert says in a court order filed Thursday that Lunsford was "sternly warned" of the possibility of imprisonment and a contempt-of-court prosecution after her second arrest last month.
He says it's clear she'll likely ignore yet another warning.
Lunsford was repeatedly warned to stay away from the convicted felon who fathered what will be her eighth child.
Prosecutors had her arrested this week for defying the order.
Lunsford served eight months for welfare fraud after her 3-year-old daughter Aliayah disappeared from their Lewis County home in September 2011.
