NY couple arrested in Amish girls' kidnapping

ALBANY -- A northern New York couple has been accused of kidnapping two Amish sisters from their family's roadside farm stand.
St. Lawrence County's District Attorney Mary Rain says 39-year-old Stephen Howells and 25-year-old Nicole Vaisey of Hermon were each charged Friday with two counts each of first-degree kidnapping.
She says they're in custody awaiting arraignment Friday night and additional charges are possible.
The sisters vanished Wednesday evening in Oswegatchie, touching off a massive search in the farming community near the Canadian border.
They turned up safe Thursday night at the door of a house 15 miles from their home.
Authorities had been tight-lipped about details, including what happened to 7-year-old Delila Miller and 12-year-old Fannie Miller while missing.
Shocked residents were reluctant to let their children play outdoors since the episode.
