— The birth mother accused of kidnapping her twin toddlers from their adoptive parents in Apex is scheduled to appear on a nationally syndicated television show Thursday.

Allison Quets will appear on the Dr. Phil show, speaking from behind bars in the Franklin County jail, where she is being held on federal kidnapping charges.

Quets is charged with taking the twins in December after a weekend visit and fleeing to Canada.

She agreed to let an Apex couple adopt her twins, but later changed her mind. She maintains she was coerced into the adoption and only went along with it because she was seriously ill after giving birth.

The twins remain with their adoptive parents in Apex, but Quets continues to fight for custody in the case.

Her next court appearance is April 23.
