Fox News reports that Abston’s charge is “especially aggravated kidnapping and tampering” and his bond was set at $500,000 on Sunday. Abston could be released on his own recognizance if he, or someone on his behalf, posts $50,000 in bail.
Abston, who was recently released from prison for a 2000 kidnapping, has yet to reveal where Fletcher is or what he did to her. The affidavit said that blood was found inside of Abston’s vehicle indicating that Fletcher had suffered a “serious injury.”
