4 Accused of Tying Va. Teen to Tree, Attacking Her

May 22, 2012

Four people face charges of tying a 15-year-old girl to a tree and assaulting her with eggs and beer in Isle of Wight County.

Isle of Wight Sheriff's Lt. James Pope tells media outlets that the incident occurred in late April at the Big Bear Campground in Windsor. The girl wasn't injured. She's now in the care of the county Department of Social Services.

Pope says two suspects, 48-year-old Loretta L. Miller and 47-year-old Randel L. Miller, are the teenager's guardians. The others, 48-year-old Ross Renicker and 46-year-old Margaret J. Allen, are neighbors.

All four suspects are charged with assault and battery of a family or household member. The Millers and Allen also are charged with abduction.

Pope says investigators haven't determined a motive for the attack.
