A federal judge Wednesday ordered a man initially charged with abducting his teenaged stepdaughter from a doctor's office in Dothan held until trial. While federal kidnaping charges against Charles Dean Partin have been dismissed, he still faces a charge of transporting a stolen car across state lines.
Partin and his common law wife, Julie Bethke, were arrested September 22 after 15-year old Aileen Lander was taken from the medical clinic where she had an appointment. Lander was accompanied by a DHR worker at the time. The couple, traveling with Lander and five of her siblings, eluded authorities for five days before they were captured in Cincinnati, Ohio.
