18-year-old pleads not guilty to kidnapping

Posted: Updated:

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) -- An 18-year-old Sioux City man has pleaded not guilty to kidnappings linked to a dispute over drug dealings.
The Sioux City Journal reports that Isaiah Mothershed entered his plea Monday in Woodbury County District Court. He's charged with two counts of kidnapping and two counts of willful injury.
Court documents say two people who went to buy marijuana from Mothershed on July 7 were bound and blindfolded by him after he accused them of helping another person steal his pot. The documents say he used a hot object to burn their faces and struck one of them with a shotgun.
The documents say Mothershed then forced them into the trunk of his car, but they escaped later when he stopped and left the car to go into a house.
