Amy Fleming being held at Clark County Detention Center

Local News

Amy Fleming, who is charged with killing her 3-year-old son more than 30 years ago, is now being held at Clark County Detention Center. 

A new mugshot of 6-year-old Fleming was released Friday.

She in court Thursday for the first time since she was extradited back to Nevada to face charges for killing 3-year-old Francillon Pierre in 1986.

North Las Vegas Police claim Fleming murdered her son. She claimed the boy went missing at a swap meet.

In court Thursday, Fleming stood for much of the nearly 20-minute long hearing while her attorney argued that she should be released on bail.

The judge kept her bail at $1 million and set another formal bail hearing for next week on Feb. 28.
