She was ordered jailed for lack of $25,000 bail and a court-imposed condition that a responsible adult be identified into whose custody she could be released.

Jan Michael Valverde, 27, of New Haven, Connecticut, the alleged shooter in the case, was arrested on January 18.

Police have been looking for Robishaw since his arrest.

Investigators say the shooting appears to have been related to drug distribution, and Willey was the intended target.

Valverde is facing two counts each of attempted first-degree murder, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and aggravated assault with serious bodily injury.
