OLATHE, Kan. (AP) A woman who abducted an 81-year-old woman outside a northeast Kansas grocery store and forced her to withdraw money from banks is going to prison.
The Kansas City Star reports that a Johnson County judge on Tuesday sentenced 24-year-old Sarah Nicole Zaragoza to 11 years. It’s the same sentence given earlier to her female co-defendant in the August 2010 crime.
Edna Wells was in the courtroom to see the second of her kidnappers sentenced.
The women grabbed Wells at knifepoint outside a Shawnee supermarket and forced her to drive around Johnson County withdrawing money from ATMs. The episode ended when Wells decided to drive to a bank where they had to go inside to get money. She mouthed the word “help” to a teller and her kidnappers took off.
