A strange kidnapping case returns to federal court in Rochester, New York tomorrow.  19 year-old Brandon Todd of Prattsburgh (in northern Steuben county) is accused of kidnapping a 28 year-old Florida woman and holding her captive in his grandparents home.  At issue is whether the alleged victims should be compelled to testify at Todd’s bail hearing.  Todd met the woman on a bus to California last April.  He then returned to Prattsburgh with her. Prosecutors allege the woman was threatened and kidnapped by Todd, then faked an asthma attack and escaped from the hospital.
