STOCKTON, Calif. (AP) -- Prosecutors say they will not file charges against a father and son arrested on suspicion of kidnapping the father's ex-wife in Northern California to perform an exorcism.
San Joaquin County Deputy District Attorney Robert Himelblau told The Record of Stockton on Thursday that 42-year-old Jose Magana-Farias and 20-year-old Victor Farias would not be charged. He declined to say why.
The father and son were accused of kidnapping 41-year-old Blanca Farias from Stockton on Saturday. They were arrested on suspicion of kidnapping, false imprisonment and conspiracy to commit a crime.
Blanca Farias told News10 in Sacramento they told her she had devils inside her and took her to a church, where they bathed her in oil and made her drink it.
