PHILADELPHIA – A man accused of abducting a Philadelphia woman and a Virginia teen just weeks apart is headed to a court appearance in Philadelphia.
Federal prosecutors will try Delvin Barnes in the Philadelphia case before he is turned over to Virginia authorities.
He is set to appear before a federal magistrate in Philadelphia on kidnapping charges Wednesday afternoon and perhaps be assigned a lawyer.
The 37-year-old from Charles City County, Virginia, has been in custody since his capture last week.
Police searching for the 22-year-old woman abducted near a Philadelphia bus stop found Barnes and the victim in his car in Jessup, Maryland, three days later.
He is charged with attempted murder in the abduction of the Richmond teen. Police say she broke free as he was digging her grave.
