Decatur police charged a man Monday with kidnapping his estranged wife, following her rescue by Lawrence County authorities this weekend.
Todd Hogan, 40, who remained jailed on a bond revocation while detectives investigated the alleged abduction, faces charges of second-degree kidnapping and aggravated stalking.
Decatur police had not released additional information Tuesday.
Lawrence County Chief Deputy Wayne Huguley said Decatur police notified the Sheriff's Department that Hogan had allegedly taken his wife, Beth Hogan, 34, of Red Sunset Drive Southwest, against her will.
Huguley said deputies and investigators knew where Todd Hogan's father lived east of Moulton and spotted Todd Hogan's vehicle near that area on Lawrence County 72.
Stalking is considered aggravated if the victim has a court order against the alleged stalker, and Beth Hogan has a restraining order against her husband on file with the Morgan County sheriff.
