Suspect in Wyo. girl kidnapping held in Mont. jail
CODY, Wyo. (AP) -- Wyoming authorities plan to release details Monday on the arrest of a man in connection with the kidnapping of a Cody girl.
The FBI did not release the name of the suspect arrested in Belgrade, Mont.
But jail records there indicate a man named Jesse Paul Speer was booked over the weekend on a hold for Wyoming, with bond set at $2 million. Jailers say he is charged with kidnapping, aggravated assault and felony use of a weapon.
Police say a man lured the 11-year-old girl from Cody into his SUV last Monday by claiming he needed help finding a missing puppy. A group of hunters found the girl safe outside the town several hours later.
Authorities say it's not related to the abduction and killing of a Colorado girl.
