CONCORD, N.H. – U.S. marshals in Atlanta say they've arrested the husband of a woman who fled New Hampshire with her 8-year-old daughter a decade ago amid a custody dispute.
Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force supervisor Jim Joyner says Scott Kelley was taken into custody Wednesday at an airport as he arrived from Costa Rica. Kelley is charged with custodial interference. He's jailed and can't be reached for comment.
His wife, Genevieve Kelley, faces trial next month on the same charge. Prosecutors say she defied a court order when she fled with daughter Mary Nunes in 2004.
Joyner says the now 19-year-old Nunes was with Scott Kelley on Wednesday but had no warrants for her arrest and was released.
Genevieve Kelley says she left to protect her daughter from abuse by her ex-husband, Mark Nunes.
Nunes was investigated but never charged.
