Stephen Howells – Nicole Vaisey
A New York couple arrested in the kidnapping of two Amish sisters may have planned to abduct more children.
St. Lawrence County Sheriff Kevin Wells said Saturday that “there was the definite potential” of additional victims and that additional charges may be filed against Stephen Howells, 39, and Nicole Vaisey, 25.
The Hermon, N.Y., couple have been arraigned on charges they intended to physically harm or sexually abuse a 7-year-old and 12-year-old after abducting them from a roadside farm stand in northern New York State earlier this week.
Wells says the motive was “to take these girls from their home and victimize these girls.”
Wells says the motive was “to take these girls from their home and victimize these girls.”
The sheriff said Howells and Vaisey “were targeting opportunities” and did not necessarily grab the girls because they are Amish.
“There was a lot of thought process that went into this,” Wells said. “They were looking for opportunities to victimize.”
The St. Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office issued a statement late Friday saying the arrests of Howells and Vaisey “no doubt saved young children from future abuse.”
The two Amish sisters from northern New York who were kidnapped this week and then found safe a day later were sexually assaulted, the St. Lawrence County’s District Attorneys office told NBC News. Investigators believe suspects Stephen M. Howells II, 39, and Nicole F. Vaisey, 25 had planned the kidnapping using “coercion tactics” and knew ahead of time they wanted to take the girls, St. Lawrence County Sheriff Kevin Wells told reporters Saturday. Howells and Vaisey are being held without bail on first-degree kidnapping charges in the abduction and could face 25 years to life in prison if convicted. Wells added that “there was the definite potential” for additional victims, and the suspects could be hit with more charges.
Expect more charges to be added to the first degree kidnapping for Stephen Howells and Nicole Vaisey. Look for sexual assault and rape charges as well. Hopefully these two sex offenders will be going away for life.
More charges are expected soon against a northern New York couple accused of kidnapping two young Amish sisters and sexually abusing them, a prosecutor said Sunday.
Computer hard drives and other potential evidence are still being collected Sunday from the home of Stephen Howells Jr. and Nicole Vaisey, said Mary Rain, district attorney for St. Lawrence County.
“I 100 percent expect more charges,” Rain told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. She said the new charges, which she would not detail, could come after she meets with police investigators Monday or at the hearing Thursday. It’s also possible prosecutors would have to wait for results from forensic tests.

40 Year Old Tatanysha Hedman Arrested for Setting her 52 Year Old Husband Vincent Phillips on Fire After Catching Him Molesting Her 7 Year Old Daughter
Arrested, she should have been given a medal …
52 year old Vincent Phillips ran from his apartment and drove to a nearby Skyway convenience store screaming “I’m on fire!” Sounds like he is the victim, doesn’t it? However, appearances can be deceiving. Phillips was doused with gasoline and set on fire by his wife, 40 year old Tatanysha Hedman. However, some one does not do something this extreme unless there is a real reason to set a Momma Bear off. It would appear that Tatanysha Hedman caught her husband molesting her 7 year old daughter. Hedman said she did it because shooting him “was too nice.” Vincent Phillips is now facing sex crime charges. However, the police also arrested Tatanysha Hedman and she has been booked into King County Jail for investigation of assault and arson woman suspected of setting husband on fire.
After a mother in Renton, Washington, caught her husband allegedly molesting her 7-year-old daughter, she apparently planned a violent revenge plot.
Tatanysha Hedman, 40, reportedly told police that she decided to douse her husband, Vincent Phillips, 52, in gasoline while he slept and then light him on fire.
She told police that simply shooting him would have been “too nice” given the circumstances.
Phillips reportedly ran into a nearby gas station seeking help after he was able to put himself out. The man was badly burned and had to be hospitalized in intensive care.
Phillips is also now facing sex crime charges involving the 7-year-old girl, who is his stepdaughter. The extent of his alleged crimes were unknown as of Wednesday afternoon.
This child sex offender should probably count his lucky stars and pray that his wife did not go Lorena Bobbitt on him.

Asked by the dispatcher if he had used any weapons, the father responded, “My foot and my fist.”
“I didn’t proceed to ask him any questions sir,” he said. “He is nice and knocked out on the floor for you. I drug him out to the living room.”
“He stood up and his pants were around his ankles and nothing else needed to be said,” the father added to the dispatcher. “I did whatever I got a right to do except I didn’t kill him.”
The father then advised the dispatcher to deploy paramedics. “Send an ambulance. He is going to need one.”
