TELLICO PLAINS-A Maryville man has been
indicted on a kidnapping charge after he allegedly made a Tellico
Plains man take him to a real estate office at gunpoint last April.
Marvin William Young, 46, was indicted
on charges of especially aggravated kidnapping, aggravated burglary
and unlawful possession of a weapon during the Monroe County Grand
Jury's August session.
Larry Godwin told Monroe County
Sheriff's Detective Tonia Norwood he'd just gotten home around 3
p.m. April 10, after making arrangements for his recently deceased
wife when a man he didn't know stepped from behind his garage with
his hand in his pocket.
Godwin said he asked the man who he was
and what he wanted, but the man refused to identify himself. Godwin
said he was going to call the police, but the man said he would do no
such thing and they would settle this right now.
Godwin said he became afraid for his
life and asked the man if they could talk about whatever it was he
was wanting. The man said they would settle this on the porch and
stated he had been cheated out of his inheritance for three years and
he wanted Godwin to sign power of attorney over to him.
