The mother of a slain Wyoming County girl was arrested Wednesday in connection with alleged lewd behavior outside the County Jail, sheriff's deputies reported.

The incident occurred after Rachel Stra, 27, apparently was at the jail Oct. 8 visiting her fiance, Angel Colon, 24, who's been charged in her daughter's death. An arrest warrant was issued by an Orangeville town justice and Ms. Stra was arrested Wednesday.

She is charged with public lewdness and disorderly conduct. Deputies said Ms. Stra made several obscene gestures toward inmates looking out of jail windows.

Ms. Stra is the mother of Samantha Zaldivar, 7, who disappeared from their Town of Wethersfield home last Feb. 26. The girl's body was unearthed May 23 by a farmer tilling a cornfield across the street from their home.
