FARMINGTON -- The victim in a kidnapping case is getting frustrated with how long the case is taking, said Davis County Attorney Troy Rawlings.
Rawlings spoke in a hearing held for Brandon Sloper, 25, of Slaterville. Sloper is charged with one count of kidnapping and one count of aggravated assault, both second-degree felonies. The case has been sent back for a preliminary hearing, set for May 25. Sloper had previously conditionally waived his right to the hearing.
"The victim is willing to testify," Rawlings said Wednesday in 2nd District Court. "But she wants to move the case as rapidly as possible. She and her family are concerned about the delays."
According to court documents, Sloper picked up Ashlee Bambrough on July 2, 2011, at her home in South Ogden to take her to work in Ogden. Instead, Sloper continued driving on Highway 89, and the two began fighting. At one point, Bambrough was either pushed out or jumped out of the truck on Highway 193 and suffered injuries.
