A New York couple accused of kidnapping two Amish girls lured them to their car with an offer to pet a dog before shackling the sisters with the intent of enslaving them, according to the sheriff's office. Nicole Vaisey, one of the suspects, told investigators that she and her boyfriend, Stephen Howells II, ended up releasing the girls a day later after becoming frightened at news reports of the abduction, Sheriff Kevin Wells of St. Lawrence County said. The girls, aged 12 and 7, were kidnapped last week from a family farm stand some 10 miles (16 km) from New York's border with Canada in an area settled by Amish families, who typically avoid using electricity and modern technologies.

By Keith Coffman DENVER (Reuters) - A disbarred lawyer who removed her fingerprints to hide her identity will be extradited to Colorado to faces charges that she swindled at least two people out of their homes, authorities said on Wednesday. Ann Marie Miller, 40, made national headlines this month after Ohio authorities went public seeking to identify a woman they arrested in July who had used chemicals to obscure her fingerprints. She is set to go on trial next month in Allen County, Ohio, on a felony tampering charge. Lynn Kimbrough, spokeswoman for the Denver District Attorney's Office, said prosecutors have a detainer hold on Miller, and that they will file extradition papers to move her to Colorado after she is tried in Ohio.
