Amish kidnapping case: Female suspect in court

  • Nicole Vaisey, 25, and Stephen Howells Jr., 39, are accused of kidnapping two Amish sisters
  • Cops: Amish girls dropped off 15 miles from home 24 hours after abduction
  • Cops say the kidnapping was premeditated and the couple planned more abductions

One of the suspects accused in the kidnapping and sexual assault of two Amish sisters appeared in court Thursday for a preliminary hearing.

Nicole Vaisey, along with her boyfriend Stephen Howells Jr., are charged with first-degree kidnapping after the two girls were taken last week and dropped off 15 miles from their home about 24 hours later. 

As investigators are gathering evidence, they say there are at least three other victims that suffered at the hands of the suspects, and are searching for even more potential victims.
