Kidnapping added to charges against bodybuilders

Kidnapping added to charges against bodybuilders - By: Linda Seida, Staff Writer 02/08/20006 - From THE BEACON

Police allege the couple killed a former Lambertville woman who worked for them.

A former Lambertville woman was immobilized with a stun gun, drugged and suffocated before her body was found in the trunk of a burning Jaguar near Las Vegas, and now the husband-and-wife bodybuilders accused of her murder could both face the death penalty since charges against them have been upgraded, according to Las Vegas authorities.

The couple, Craig Titus and Kelly Ryan, and their alleged accomplice appeared in a Las Vegas court Feb. 1 when the original charges were amended.

No motive was given by the prosecution nor were the defendants required to enter a plea at the hearing last week.

    Another update:
    Titus and Ryan admit to tasing Melissa James

    Craig Titus and his wife, Kelly Ryan, have been charged with murder in the death of their personal assistant. They were arrested in Massachusetts more than a week after the body of Melissa James was found in the trunk of Ryan’s burning car.

    Now, court documents indicate that James may have initially been attacked with a taser gun the night before her body was discovered.

    In court documents obtained by News 3, both Titus and Ryan admitted to friends that they used a taser gun on Melissa James. A taser gun transmits 50,000 volts, incapacitating its target.

    The couple told police the gun was given to them by a friend and according to it’s manufacturer, Taser International, the gun was discharged six times on December 13 between 2:10 and 2:12 PM.

    During that time both Titus and Ryan admit that James was in their home and remnants left behind after the taser fired, called taser dots, were also found inside.

    Prosecutors say this evidence, along with the fact the pair led authorities on a manhunt shortly after they were listed as murder suspects, is proof enough they should be held behind bars and denied bail.

    Titus is scheduled for a bail hearing Friday. Both he and his wife are facing a charge of first degree murder. The defense plans to ask for a reasonable bail setting. They’re expected to argue that Titus poses no danger to the community and is not a flight risk.
