Officials: Kayla Montgomery located, arrested in Manchester, NH after missing court date – Boston News, Weather, Sports

MANCHESTER, NH (WHDH) — Kayla Montgomery, the stepmother of murder victim Harmony Montgomery, has been arrested after New Hampshire authorities issued a warrant for her arrest, officials said.

A New Hampshire Department of Justice spokesman said authorities found and detained Montgomery at a residence in Manchester on Friday afternoon.

Montgomery reportedly missed a court date Thursday morning, prompting an arrest warrant for her.

The incident was the latest in a series of legal troubles for Montgomery, who was arrested on perjury charges in June.

Montgomery, 31, of Manchester, had previously been charged with theft by deception in March, in a case allegedly unrelated to her stepdaughter’s disappearance, and was arrested for gun possession in April.

Harmony went missing in 2019. According to authorities, her disappearance is said to have taken place between November and December this year, although it was not brought to the police’s attention until 2021.

In September 2021, an affected party alerted police that they had not seen the girl for a long time, and officers were later able to confirm that her name did not appear in school registry systems.

New Hampshire officials confirmed that Harmony died of homicide last month.
