TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

The ex-boyfriend of baby Elaina's mother went before a judge for the first time, after being arrested for obstruction of justice.

Steven King's bail was set at $250,000. He is not eligible for 10 percent bond.

In court Tuesday, King's attorney, Pete Rost, pushed for a lower bail, saying his client continually cooperated with police. Rost says King was only arrested after finally telling the FBI Monday that he wouldn't be speaking with them anymore.

Court documents say King purposely made false statements to detectives. The documents go on to say the statements were found to be false, after detectives reviewed paperwork and video collected during the investigation.

Outside of the courtroom Tuesday, family talked about how Angela Steinfurth, who is also behind bars, first learned of King's arrest.

"She called me about 20 minutes after. She didn't know that they arrested him. I told her. She broke down and started crying and said, 'Now they'll find out where my babies at,'" said Richard Schiewe, Elaina's grandfather.

The family says the arrest and arraignment of King were breaks for which they've been praying.

"I just about went through my ceiling of my bedroom. I was just about to get dressed and come down here. You know, I wanted to get my hands on him, and I still do, you know? He knows where my granddaughter is at. I've said it all and all, the whole time," said Schiewe.

Family and friends are preparing for another prayer vigil for baby Elaina on Federal and Leonard in east Toledo Tuesday night.

Meanwhile, the search for missing baby Elaina continues. There is still a $10,000 reward being offered for information in the case. If you can help investigators, call 1-800-CALLFBI.

Angela Steinfurth is set to appear for a pre-trial hearing Wednesday.
