Suspect Caught in Pontotoc County

10-26-05 - A suspect on the run for two years is now behind bars in Pontotoc county. William Brent Riley had been charged with kidnapping, but he fled the county in the summer of 2003 after his preliminary hearing.

Accused of kidnapping his ex-girlfriend and holding her at knife point for several hours including cutting her cheek and nose, Riley was found last week in Maricopa, Arizona, a suburb of Phoenix. He was extradited back to Oklahoma over the weekend.

Riley currently is in the Pontotoc County Jail on a $1,000,000 bond.
