TOWN OF NORWICH, N.Y. - The mother of the 11-year-old girl who was murdered in the Town of Norwich has been arrested on an active bench warrant in Chenango County.

The Chenango County Sheriff's Office says they arrested 38-year-old Mandy O'Connor (aka Martinez) on Wednesday.

The active bench warrant was issued out of Town of Norwich Court on December 5, 2014 for failing to appear on the original offense of petit larceny.

Martinez, who currently lives in the Bronx, had come to Norwich after her biological daughter, Jacelyn O'Connor, was murdered,

Martinez told members of the media that she had struggled with drug addiction and hadn’t seen her daughter in several years before learning of her death through Facebook.
