Woman Recants Trapped in Attic Story; Butte Prosecutors Plan to Pursue Charges

OROVILLE, Calif. (AP) — Prosecutors in Northern California say they plan to pursue charges against a 29-year-old man accused of holding his ex-wife hostage in his attic — even though the woman has recanted the story. Lawson Rankin of Oroville was arrested this week after deputies found his ex-wife trapped behind a wall in the attic of his house. At the time she told deputies that she had been held captive there for two weeks and was repeatedly beaten and raped by Rankin, but she has since said she wasn't held against her will and she doesn't want to testify.
