The parents of a ten year old schoolgirl called Shannon have been charged over the kidnapping of their own daughter.
The both parents had embarked in a wicked plan by capturing Shannon and imprisoning her into a flat and drugged during the period of her captivity while the mother had called 999 to report her daughter missing.
The jury of Leeds Crown Court heard that Donovan might have used an elasticated strap with a noose on the end to prevent her from going out of his flat in Lidgate.
The reason behind the wicked plan by the parents was to obtain the reward money offered by the press which was up to £50,000.
Karen had deliberately mislead the police for investigating the missing of her own daughter.
