Trial For Man Accused Of Kidnapping Wife Postponed
LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) — William Paul Morgan’s second-degree kidnapping trial has been continued until next year.
The American Press reports the trial, which was scheduled for Monday, has been reset for Jan. 28 to allow time for a crime lab report to be completed.
Morgan’s kidnapping charges stem from Oct. 7, 2011, when police say Morgan kidnapped his pregnant wife from the orthodontist office where she worked.
Morgan has been jailed at Calcasieu Correction Center since October 2011 on an $850,000 bond. He is also charged with false imprisonment and violation of a protective order.
