SANDYVILLE - A Sandyville man faces multiple charges including kidnapping, daytime burglary and felony fleeing in a vehicle, following a domestic incident on Turkey Fork Road that culminated with a high speed chase on April 21.
Jacob L. Wilson, 38, of Sandyville, remains lodged in the South Centeral Regional in lieu of $75,000, following arrest at the conclusion of a chase by lawmen that exceeded 100 mph.
Jackson County 911 received a call from a hysterical female at around 12:40 p.m. on April 21, claiming she was nine months pregnant and has been held against her will all night by the father of her unborn child and physically bused. The woman began screaming for help and then the call ended abruptly.
JCBI detectives R.H. Mellinger, M.E. Culen and R.J., Knox responded to the Turkey Fork Road address, along with Chief Deputy H.L. Faber and Deputy B.L. Varney of the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department.
As they arrived, a black Nissan Murano pulled out of the driveway and fled at a high rate of speed toward Wirt County. Detective Cullen gave chase and the pursuit for some two miles topped 100 mph, before the suspect vehicle stopped. The driver, Wilson, was removed from the car at gunpoint by Cullen, Mellinger and Knox, handcuffed and taken into custody.
The victim claimed that Wilson had allegedly physically kept her from leaving her residence and allegedly choked her to keep her from leaving. She said she finally was able to escape and run to a nearby dwelling with Wilson in foot pursuit. Wilson allegedly entered the other house via an unsecured window, before fleeing just prior to the officers; arrival.
Investigators said the victim had redness on her throat consistent with being choked.
Wilson was subsequently charged with kidnapping, daytime burglary and felony fleeing in a vehicle.
