Lubbock man indicted on 3 kidnapping counts

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - A Lubbock man arrested in Oklahoma, where three missing children were found safe, has been indicted on charges that he abducted them.

A federal grand jury in Lubbock on Wednesday indicted 41-year-old Kenneth Michael Wilcox on three counts of kidnapping.

Bond was $750,000 for Wilcox, who was in the Lubbock County Jail on state aggravated kidnapping charges. Sheriff's Deputy John Hill had no information on an attorney for Wilcox.

Wilcox was arrested Oct. 28 near Shinewell, Okla., with an 11-year-old girl.

A 9-year-old boy and a 15-year-old girl were found Oct. 27 near Idabel, Okla., with a cousin of Wilcox.

Wilcox, who lived in the same apartment complex as the three children, is accused of taking them and his son for what was to be a trip to Six Flags over Texas in Arlington.

Police say he instead left his son with his ex-wife in Amarillo and took off with the other three youngsters.
