Mother, Aunt of Duke Flores scheduled for arraignment in Victorville courtroom

VICTORVILLE, Calif. ( — Twin sisters, Jackee and Jennifer Contreras, 29 of Apple Valley, are scheduled to appear in front of a Victorville judge relating to the disappearance of Duke Flores.

According to public court records, the boy’s mother, Jackee, is scheduled to appear on April 29th, at 12:30 p.m., in court on charges of Cruelty to a child with possible injury or death. Her bail for that offense is set at $100,000.

She also faces charges of murder and is ineligible for bail on that charge.

The Apple Valley Police Department said Saturday that both sisters are facing charges of murder.

Court records revealed that Duke’s aunt, Jennifer, is being charged with PC 32, Accessory to Murder. She is also ineligible for bail.

In California, “accessory to murder” is typically charged when a person helps a principal felon avoid, or escape arrest, trial, conviction or punishment after the felony has been committed.

Both sisters are scheduled in court on April 30th at 12:30 p.m. in Victorville for murder charges. The presiding judge will read their rights, as well as any possible penalties for any and all criminal charges.

They will then be expected to enter a plea of guilty or not guilty.
