COLUMBUS (WCMH) — The suspect accused of kidnapping a 1-year-old child Tuesday night had his first court hearing Thursday.
During the arraignment a judge issued, William Hannah, 50, a $150,000 cash surety bond.
Hannah is accused of getting into a domestic violence incident with the child’s mother, pistol-whipping her, and then leaving the Madison Township home in the mother’s car with the child, Soull Minnehan.
The mother required stitches for her head injury. Police say Hannah has no legal custody of the child.
Soull was recovered safely. His mother said Wednesday that they are both doing OK following the incident, but declined to appear on camera.
Hannah was taken into custody without incident, law enforcement officials said.
Hannah could face kidnapping, domestic violence, and felonious assault charges, according to an earlier statement from the sheriff’s office.
Hannah’s next hearing is scheduled for March 5.
