APNewsBreak: Court documents say kidnapped Montana teacher choked to death, buried
BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) ' An affidavit filed Friday in the kidnapping of a Montana school teacher describes a crack-fueled, seemingly random abduction of 43-year-old Sherry Arnold, who was allegedly choked to death and then buried in a shallow grave on a North Dakota farmstead.
The affidavit filed Friday offers the first details of what authorities believe happened to Arnold after she went missing during a morning run on Jan. 7. Her body has not been found.
Lester Waters, 47, and Michael Spell, 22, are scheduled to appear in Montana district court Feb. 28 on charges of aggravated kidnapping. They are being held on $2.5 million bail each.
