Sheriff: Couple Charged In Wright County Kidnapping
BUFFALO (AP) - Wright County authorities have charged a couple in connection with the kidnapping of an Albion Township man who has been missing for more than three weeks.
28-year-old Robert Nuttall and 33-year-old Gwen Butcher were in jail Sunday following the charges filed Friday. Nuttall is charged with kidnapping 25-year-old Christopher Rossing. Butcher is charged with aiding an offender after the fact.
Sheriff Joe Hagerty says Rossing had a physical altercation with Nuttall early on Aug. 23 along a highway in Howard Lake before he went missing. The charges say the two had been drinking earlier. Rossing's car was found in Howard Lake four days later.
A $5,000 reward is being offered for information leading to Rossing.
It wasn't immediate clear if Nuttall and Butcher have attorneys.
