IOWA CITY (KWWL) - A Coralville man who triggered an AMBER Alert earlier this month has now been charged with kidnapping and weapons charges in relation to that incident.

Kenneth Johns, 48, of Coralville was charged Tuesday with second-degree kidnapping, felon in control of firearms and carrying weapons.

Johns is already booked into the Johnson County Jail. His bail on the new charges was set at $75,000 cash only.

The new charges stem from the alleged abduction by Johns of his 10-year-old step-daughter and threatening the life of his wife.

Previously, Johns was charged with a parole violation and violating a no-contact order.
