Grand Jury Investigating Kyron Horman's Disappearance

The mystery woman who Kyron Horman's parents believe has information about their son's disappearance appeared Monday before an "investigative grand jury," according to her lawyer.

DeDe Spicher, a longtime friend of the missing Oregon boy's stepmother, Terri Moulton Horman, was subpoenaed to meet with the panel at a Portland, Ore., area courthouse, lawyer Chad Stavley tells The Oregonian.

"[It] was a preliminary, very short session," adds Stavley. "I anticipate she'll be back in front of the jury sometime in the future."

The lawyer tells CNN's HLN that prosecutors didn't ask Spicher any questions about the case and only asked her to return.

Kyron's parents, Kaine Horman and Desiree Young, contend Spicher impeded the sheriff's investigation by refusing to cooperate with authorities. Her lawyer, however, says she has met with detectives for more than three hours and has had "several follow-up conversations."

Meanwhile, the 7-year-old's father filed a motion in court asking a judge to order his estranged wife to reveal how she obtained $350,000 to hire her attorney.

Kaine's attorney said he wants to know if the money used to pay her legal bills resulted from the couple's relationship and if it did, he is asking for half the amount.
