DOTHAN, AL - A trial date has been set for the man accused of kidnapping his stepdaughter in September.
Authorities say Charles Partin kidnapped 15-year-old Aileen Lander from a Dothan doctor's office and then led police on a multi-state manhunt.
He faces federal charges of transporting a minor across state lines for immoral purposes and transporting a stolen vehicle across state line.
Jury selection in Partin's case is scheduled to start on March 18.
Partin's wife, Julie Bethke, faces a state charge of interfering with child custody. She's being held in the Houston County Jail.
