St. Lawrence County (WROC)-  The two Amish girls allegedly abducted in Saint Lawrence county were taken to become slaves.  That's what Nicole Vaisey told investigators her boyfriend, Stephen Howells, wanted to do with the 6 and 12 year old.  Both are charged with kidnapping.
Vaisey said the sisters were handcuffed together to a bedpost while they were held captive.  She told investigators she and Howells eventually became scared after hearing news reports and decided to drop the girls off in an isolated area.  Prosecutors say the girls were sexually abused.
A judge ordered Vaisey to be held without bail.  Howells  is also in jail.  He has waived his right to a hearing.
