Man Pleads Guilty To Kidnapping Estranged Wife

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A northern Minnesota man has pleaded guilty in federal court to kidnapping his estranged wife.

Forty-two-year-old Timothy Glen Caskey of Virginia admitted that on July 14, 2011, he kidnapped his wife from Virginia, Minn., and took her across state lines against her will.

Court documents say Caskey jumped out of a pickup truck, grabbed his wife, shoved her into the vehicle and struck two people who tried to help the woman. Caskey kidnapped his wife just hours after being released from jail for violating a protective order she had against him.

In addition, the U.S. Attorney’s office says Caskey pleaded guilty to robbing the Great Southern Bank in Ottawa, Kan., on July 15, 2011.

Caskey’s wife was recovered on Aug. 8, 2011, in Mexico shortly after Caskey was arrested there.
