BROWNSVILLE, Texas (AP) — A federal judge in South Texas has denied bond for a Minnesota man accused of abducting his estranged wife and fleeing to Mexico.

Timothy Glen Caskey appeared Tuesday before a magistrate in Brownsville and awaits extradition. Caskey has requested an attorney.

The FBI says Caskey was arrested Monday in Matamoros, Mexico. Roberta Lynn Caskey was with him.

Investigators say Timothy Caskey allegedly kidnapped his spouse off a street in Virginia, Minn., on July 14, hours after being released from jail for violating a protective order she had against him.

Caskey, who has a history of domestic violence, is charged with kidnapping, false imprisonment and violating his parole. KGBT-TV reports Caskey is being investigated for the July 16 theft of a truck during a test drive in New Braunfels.
