Forty-year-old Timothy Glen Caskey of Virginia is charged with kidnapping and interstate domestic violence. Caskey is accused of abducting his wife while she was walking with friends in Virginia July 14. Court documents say Caskey jumped out of a pickup truck, grabbed his wife, shoved her into the vehicle and struck two people who tried to help the woman.

Caskey had been released from a correctional center earlier that day where he served time for violating a restraining order filed by his wife.

If convicted, Caskey face a maximum sentence of life in prison.
