    PROVIDENCE—Two women from  Warwick and Coventry made initial appearances in U.S. District Court in Providence on unrelated charges that they created and received child pornography, respectively, on Tuesday.

    Samantha York, 29, of Warwick and Pawtucket, has been ordered detained in federal custody on a criminal complaint charging her with production and distribution of child pornography.  York made an initial appearance before U.S. District Court Magistrate Judge Lincoln D. Almond on November 9, 2017, charged with one count each of production of child pornography and distribution of child pornography.

    According to information presented to the Court, it is alleged that in March 2014, York produced a video depicting child pornography involving a female toddler. It is alleged that the video was distributed to at least two other individuals.

    In a separate federal criminal complaint filed in the U.S. District Court, Karissa A. Cave, 21, of Coventry and Newport, is charged with one count each of receiving child pornography and possession of child pornography.  Cave was released on $10,000 unsecured bond following an initial appearance before U.S. District Court Magistrate Judge Lincoln D. Almond on November 9, 2017.

    According to information presented to the Court, it is alleged that Cave received and possessed child pornography involving a female toddler, allegedly produced and distributed by Samantha York.
