WICHITA, Kan. -- (WDAF) -- The stepmother of a 5-year-old Wichita boy whose body was found three months after he was reported missing has been released from jail without charges.

Sedgwick County District Attorney Marc Bennett released a statement Wednesday afternoon saying no charges have been filed in the death of Lucas Hernandez, whose body was found under a bridge May 24 on a gravel road in Harvey County.

Within hours of the discovery, the boy’s stepmother, Emily Glass, was arrested and has been held since on suspicion of obstruction and interference of a law enforcement officer. Police had said Glass led a private investigator to Lucas’ body.

Glass reported Lucas missing from their home on Feb. 17.
