Alleged kidnapper of Jayme Closs appears in court

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) The Wisconsin man charged with kidnapping a 13-year-old girl and murdering her parents, sparking a three-months-long search that ended only after Jayme Closs escaped captivity, appeared in court on Wednesday and a judge set his arraignment date for March 27th.

Authorities have charged Jake Patterson, 21, with murder for shooting Closs' parents to death with a shotgun before kidnapping the girl he had targeted seemingly at random after spotting her boarding a school bus.

Patterson appeared at the Barron County Circuit Court for a preliminary hearing to determine whether there is probable cause for a trial.

His attorney waived the hearing.

Wisconsin does not have a death penalty.

Police say Patterson admitted to dragging the teen into the trunk of his car and driving to his tiny cabin in Gordon, Wisconsin, about 112 miles (180 km) northeast of Minneapolis, where he held her hostage for months, sometimes under his bed.

The October discovery of the parents' bodies in their home in Barron, Wisconsin, with the door blasted open and their daughter gone, sparked a search by hundreds of police officers and thousands of volunteers.

After 88 days, Closs escaped on Jan.

10 and sought help from a woman walking her dog, according to court papers.

Soon after, police arrested Patterson, who told investigators he had been looking for Closs.

Patterson is charged with two counts of first-degree murder for the killings of James and Denise Closs, as well as kidnapping and burglary counts.

He has not yet entered a plea, a Wisconsin Department of Justice spokeswoman said.
