Wake County District Attorney Says He Will Ask Grand Jury to Indict Alleged Kidnapper

Posted February 17, 2000 6:00 a.m. EST

— A Wake County grand jury will be asked next week to take up the kidnapping case of 9-year-oldC. J. Wilkerson.

District Attorney Colon Willoughby says he will ask a grand jury next week to indict Derrick Glover on first-degree kidnapping charges.

The State Supreme Court has given Willoughby until Monday to move the case forward, or release Glover.

Glover has yet to take Willoughby up on hisimmunity deal, but that is not the only reason Glover is still in jail.

The State Supreme Court rejected a motion that Glover should be released until trial. His attorneys argue the judge mishandled the case.

Glover was the last person seen with C.J. nearly five weeks ago. He is being held on kidnapping charges and refuses to talk with investigators.

On Thursday, the district attorney offered Glover a deal. If he tells them where the boy is, and C.J. is found safe and sound, Glover will be set free. -->
