Runaway bride indicted

The week's news at a glance.

Duluth, Ga.

Jennifer Wilbanks, the Georgia woman who skipped town in April to escape the pressures of her lavish wedding plans, was indicted last week for lying to police. Wilbanks disappeared four days before she was supposed to walk down the aisle, then resurfaced in Albuquerque. She told police she had been kidnapped and raped, but she later admitted that she had fled on a Greyhound bus. City officials in Duluth, Ga., want her to pay back the $43,000 police spent looking for her, and if convicted she could be sentenced to six years in prison and fined $11,000. The prosecutor, Danny Porter, suggested bail be set low. “I don’t consider her a flight risk,” he said.
