Judge Lee of the E.D. Va. throws out kidnapping verdict in Lentz case

The Washington Post reports here that Judge Gerald Bruce Lee of the E.D. Va. has granted a defense motion to dismiss the federal kidnapping charges against Jay Lentz, after a jury found him guilty (despite no body ever being found). The judge criticized the U.S. for making a federal case of an ordinary murder prosecution.
