FARMINGTON -- A 29-year-old man accused of kidnapping his former in-laws has agreed to take a polygraph test.
Joshua Latoice Cronin, of Sandy, appeared in 2nd District Court on Wednesday before Judge David Hamilton.
His attorney, Michael Edwards, said there are some "factual discrepancies" that he and Cronin want to clear up, and that is why Cronin is willing to take a polygraph test.
Cronin entered not-guilty pleas March 30 to two counts of first-degree felony aggravated kidnapping, two counts of third-degree felony aggravated assault and one count of attempted violation of a protective order, a class B misdemeanor.
Another hearing is set for July 6.
Prosecutors are in charge of submitting the paperwork so Cronin can take a polygraph test.
Attorneys would not comment about what facts are in dispute.
Police said Cronin met with his ex-in-laws in Syracuse so they could pick up their grandson Oct. 6, 2010. However, police said Cronin ended up holding the couple at gunpoint and demanding to see their daughter, his ex-wife, before eventually letting them go.
Cronin was arrested Oct. 7 at the Rainbow Hotel in Wendover, Nev.
Cronin was allowed to have his son for three hours every Wednesday night. However, when the grandparents went to pick up their grandson Sept. 29 at Cronin's house in Sandy, he refused to let them take the boy.
The couple said a week later Cronin asked to meet them near Syracuse Family Fun Center at 1806 S. 2000 West, which is across the street from the police station. The grandparents expected to retrieve their grandson from him there.
Cronin told the Brigham City couple when they arrived he would give the child back to them only if they took him to his ex-wife. He got in their car and wanted them to drive back to Brigham City, where he believed his ex-wife was.
They said no, because the court had issued a protective order against Cronin, who is not to have any contact with his ex-wife, police said.
The couple had dropped off their daughter at a nearby Smith's grocery store.
