Idaho Man Enters Guilty Plea for Kidnapping Woman
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — An Idaho man accused of driving a kidnapped woman’s car to North Dakota and pulling a gun on a trucker has pleaded guilty to four felony charges. The Bismarck Tribune reports that 57-year-old Mitchell Lee Walck pleaded guilty Tuesday to terrorizing, unlawful entry to a motor vehicle, possession of stolen property and felon in possession of a firearm.
Authorities allege he shot at an Idaho state trooper on Nov. 30, kidnapped a woman from her Rathdrum, Idaho, home a day later, released her the next day in Glendive, Mont., then drove to Bismarck and threatened a trucker whose semitrailer sleeper cab he had entered. Walck is slated to be sentenced on Oct. 1. He faces up to five years in prison on each of the four charges.
