Baby Gabriel Mom Heads Back to Court Tomorrow

Elizabeth Johnson, the mother of missing baby Gabriel Johnson, will be in court again tomorrow for her latest pre-trial hearing in her kidnapping case, and we're waiting on pins and needles to see what sort of lunacy she brings to the courthouse this time.

Johnson is the last known person to see Gabriel Johnson alive back in December 2009 and has since found herself in the loony bin of a Maricopa County jail after a series of bizarre acts.

Aside from providing absolutely no help to law enforcement agencies trying to find her missing son, Johnson has refused to go to court, tried to fire her lawyer for no apparent reason, other than the woman was "telling [her] what to do;" wrote a last will and testament; started fights with her fellow MCSO inmates; and went on a hunger strike by refusing to eat Sheriff Joe's "loaf"  -- which she claims is full of worms.

On second thought, we can't really hold refusing Joe's loaf against her.

Johnson will meet with Judge Paul McMurdie, her lawyers, and prosecutor Angela Andrews  at 8:30 a.m. Check back to Valley Fever tomorrow for updates on the Elizabeth Johnson circus.
