A 35-year-old woman is charged with kidnapping for allegedly taking her father from a Pueblo assisted-living center.
Police say that 57-year-old Apolonio Fierro was kidnapped from the center where he has been court-ordered for medical reason. Fierro was found in the home of his daughter, Vesenta Alana Fierro.
The daughter was charged with second-degree kidnapping and crimes against an at-risk adult. She was in Pueblo County jail Monday without bail pending a court hearing.
Police say the daughter had made comments in the past that she would assist her father in committing suicide if he were ever placed in an assisted-living facility.
