An accused kidnapper captured last week was in court today for a pre-trial hearing.
A detective with Kentucky State Police testified today in the Floyd county court that they were already looking for Charles Lemaster because there was an emergency protective order filed against him by his estranged wife for an alleged assault.
Police say Charles Lemaster entered the gas station where Nancy Lemaster worked waving a gun and threatening her. They say she then ran away from him but he caught her in the parking lot and forced her into his vehicle.
Police say along with kidnapping. One of the six charges he's facing is assault second degree because he hit her on the head with his gun.
"She had been bleeding profusely from the head," said KSP Detective Mike Goble. "It had gone down the side of her face and her neck and totally saturated the front of her shirt."
They say he's also facing 3 counts of wanton endangerment because he waved the loaded gun at the gas station around 2 other employees.
The case against Lemaster now goes to the grand jury.
