Uncle Accused of Abducting Niece Brooke Bennett in Court Weds

Posted:

The man accused of abducting his niece, 12-year-old Brooke Bennett of Braintree, Vermont, is scheduled to appear in court this coming week.

A probable cause hearing will be held on Wednesday for Michael Jacques, a convicted sex offender who's accused of kidnapping Bennett a week before her body was found buried near his Randolph home.

No one has been charged in her death.

Authorities say Jacques used the girl's Myspace page and a series of e-mails he sent using aliases to plan her abduction.

Also charged in the case is Bennett's former stepfather, who faces obstruction of justice charges in her disappearance.
