ORLANDO, Fla. – The teenager who ran away from Ohio to Florida because she feared physical harm for converting from Islam to Christianity will be back before an Orlando judge.
The judge is holding another hearing Tuesday that will help determine whether 17-year-old Rifqa Bary stays in Orlando or returns to her family who live outside Columbus.
Bary is in foster care in Florida while her case is being reviewed.
She ran away from her parents' home in July, saying she feared being killed for changing religions. But a Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigation found no credible threats to Bary.
