      Trial date for Elsberry man charged in kidnapping

      A trial date is set for an Elsberry man charged with kidnapping.

      Jon Paul Heinz, 23, is charged with the February 2012 abduction of a 19-year-old woman.

      Investigators say the suspect hid in the trunk of the victim's car and grabbed her when she went to investigate why it was slightly open.

      The woman escaped at a gas station in Wright City and call 911. Heinz was arrested in Bloomington, Illinois.

      The woman had an order of protection against Heinz.

      The trial is scheduled to begin June 2.
