A woman charged with kidnapping a baby boy from a south Minneapolis home appeared in court Tuesday.

Thirty-year-old Isabel Diaz-Castillo was arrested in February after a four hour search for 8-month-old Carlos Orozco.
Police found her with the boy in the basement of a relative's home.

The boy was reunited with his mother, who Diaz-Castillo had recently become friends with.

Diaz-Castillo appeared in a Hennepin County court room Tuesday morning.

A judge has ordered a competency hearing. That hearing is scheduled for May 1 at 8:30 a.m.

Diaz-Castillo remains in jail and faces up to four years in prison.

Bail was previously set at $100,000 due to immigration issues.
