Katie Beers' joy quickly turned to deep concern when she learned 13-year-old Jayme Closs had been found alive in rural Wisconsin almost three months after police say a man shot and killed her parents and then abducted the girl from their home.
Patterson is scheduled to go to court Monday where he is expected to be formally charged with two counts of first-degree intentional homicide and one count of kidnapping.
The girl had been missing since her parents, James and Denise Closs, were found shot to death on October 15 at the family's home near Barron.
Jayme had been missing for almost three months Thursday when she approached a stranger near the small, isolated north woods town of Gordon and pleaded for help. Officers arrested Patterson, 21, minutes later, based on Jayme's description of his vehicle. He was jailed on suspicion of kidnapping and homicide.
