PHOENIX (AP) — The mother of a missing Arizona baby wants the case against her dismissed by a Maricopa County Superior Court judge

Elizabeth Johnson's former attorney testified Wednesday that she was tainted after being interviewed by a San Antonio police detective.

The 25-year-old Johnson has been held in a downtown Phoenix jail on a $1.1 million cash bond since January 2010.

Her son Gabriel was 8 months old when he was last seen with Johnson in San Antonio in December 2009.

Johnson claims the charges against her should be dropped because of an "illegal" jail house interview by a Texas detective who knew Johnson wasn't represented by an attorney.

She is charged with kidnapping, child abuse, conspiracy to commit custodial interference and custodial interference in the disappearance of her baby.
