A preliminary hearing is coming Wednesday for an Emporia man accused of kidnapping and other violent offenses.


Alexander Couch, age 20, has a preliminary hearing at 11 am Wednesday in Lyon County District Court. He's formally charged with single counts of aggravated kidnapping, aggravated robbery, aggravated battery and criminal threat.

Court documents provided to KVOE News say Couch allegedly forced a man into a car against his will, took him to two separate places in town, threatened him with bodily harm and took his phone back in late October 2020.

Couch was on the Lyon County Most Wanted list for about two months before he was captured in north-central Emporia a month ago.
