Suspect in Missing Child Case Faces Prison for Another Crime

The woman arrested earlier this week by Youngstown Police in connection with the disappearance and apparent death of a missing child, is ordered to serve one year in prison on another crime.

Thirty-four-year-old Jennifer Snyder admits she violated her probation on an unrelated charge by testing positive for cocaine and heroin in July. Judge Scott Krichbaum ordered Snyder back to prison for one year.

Snyder was the legal guardian of 16-year-old Jimmy Higham when he disappeared in June of 2001. Youngstown Police Detectives say the child died in her custody.
