Couple formally charged with weekend Topeka kidnapping

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – A man and woman have been charged with kidnapping and sexually assaulting an 8-year-old girl over the weekend in Topeka.

28-year-old Jeremy Lindsey and 23-year-old Michelle Harris were charged with the attack Wednesday in Shawnee County District Court. The two are jailed on $1 million bond.

The Shawnee County court website listed Lindsey’s attorney as Joseph Huerter, but a woman at his law firm said the case hadn’t yet been formally assigned to Huerter. Harris’ attorney in the Shawnee County public defender’s office didn’t immediately return a phone call.

The girl was missing for nearly six hours when she was found Saturday afternoon walking along a road about two miles away from her home. About 50 people participated in the search.
