Watch: Attempted kidnapping case heads to Grand Jury

An Oktibbeha County Grand Jury will now hear the case of a Starkville man facing two counts of attempted kidnapping after trying to check out a student from a local school without the parent’s permission.

The preliminary hearing for 45-year-old John B. Arnold, Jr. was held in Starkville Municipal Court on Tuesday, with four witnesses called to the stand.

Judge Marty Haug presided over the hearing and after the witness testimony, found probable cause to send the case on to grand jury.
