Parents of missing Saugerties girl found under staircase appear in court

The two biological parents accused of hiding their child under a staircase in Saugerties were back in court Wednesday afternoon.

NewsChannel 13 is still working to find out what happened during Kimberly Cooper and Kirk Shultis Jr.’s appearance.

They are accused of abducting Paislee Shultis back in 2019.

In February, Saugerties Police found the little girl alive in a small space below a staircase in a home.

Cooper and Shultis Jr. lost custody of Paislee in 2019, around the same time she went missing.
