A New Hampshire mother who fled with her daughter more than a decade ago amid a custody dispute is set to report to jail.

Genevieve Kelley pleaded guilty in June to misdemeanor charges of custodial interference for taking her then-8-year-old daughter out of the country in 2004.

Under a plea deal, Kelley will serve 10 months in county jail. Her current husband, Scott Kelley, pleaded guilty to the same charges and was sentenced to five months.

The judge staggered the sentences — with Scott Kelley going first — so their 10-year-old son wouldn't be without a parent. Genevieve Kelley is set to report to jail Monday.

The couple said they took the girl to protect her. They accused her father, Mark Nunes, of abuse.

Nunes was investigated but never charged.
