Stepmother of Lucas Hernandez appears in court for a motion hearing

WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) - Friday morning the stepmother of missing Wichita child Lucas Hernandez was in a Sedgwick County courtroom for a motion hearing to suppress evidence.

Emily Glass is charged with child endangerment stemming from the care of her daughter. 

According to documents, Glass admitted to smoking marijuana the day before Lucas was reported missing. 

During Friday's motions hearing, her attorney argued that her missing stepson shouldn't be part of the trial, but did say Lucas Hernandez could come up in court. 

"Regard to any allegations to Lucas, the fact that his name may come up, as long as it's done as cautiously and generic as possible should be OK," said Judge Joe Kisner in court. 

The judge said he will have to review a three hour interview between Glass and investigators, and he will issue his ruling next Friday. 

Glass remains in jail on a $50,000 bond. Her daughter is in state custody.
