Her mother’s body was discovered in the 5600 block of Mason Avenue, where her daughter lived. 

Laura Purviance, who was arrested Friday by Oregon State Troopers at a rest stop near Medford, Ore., appeared in a Van Nuys court today.

She attended Saugus High for a little over year before transferring out of the district.

Her arraignment was put over to March 21 in Department 100.

She is being held on $2 million bail.

If convicted, she faces up to life in prison.

The case is being prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Elizabeth Ratinoff.
