BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — The case involving a state parole officer and her boyfriend who were charged with kidnapping a 1-year-old boy has been transferred to a court in Waterbury, according to the Connecticut Post.

Superior Court Judge Earl Richard moved the case because of possible conflicts in the Bridgeport courthouse, the Post said.

Gladys Marquez, 51, the parole officer, was charged with home invasion and second-degree kidnapping, and her boyfriend, Edgardo Soberal, 52, a retired parole officer, was charged with conspiracy to commit home invasion and second-degree kidnapping.

Each was freed on $25,000 bond.

Marquez and the boy's mother are neighbors in Stratford, and the parole officer had told the 17-year-old that she is too young to be a mother, the Post said. The baby was snatched during a visit June 7 to the P.T. Barnum housing complex, police told the Connecticut Post.

Police persuaded the parole officer to return the child, whom she apparently wanted to adopt, the Post said.
