LACONIA (AP) — Court officials say a man who pleaded not guilty to charges he kidnapped a 14-year-old girl and raped her repeatedly during nine months of captivity in New Hampshire is planning to enter a change of plea.
Nathaniel Kibby, 35, was scheduled to go on trial next month in Belknap Superior Court on nearly 200 felony charges related to the girl's October 2013 disappearance and the months that followed.
Court officials say a change-of-plea hearing has been scheduled for Thursday in Belknap County Superior Court in Laconia. No details of the change of plea have been disclosed.
Kibby's lawyers had sought to question the girl before his trial but were denied.
Prosecutors say Kibby used a stun gun, zip ties and a shock collar to control the girl at his trailer in Gorham
The man accused of kidnapping and raping a Conway teen in 2013 is expected to plead guilty.
Nathaniel Kibby wanted to question the girl about exposure to media coverage and the amount of freedom she was given to move about his trailer in Gorham, where prosecutors say he used a stun gun, zip ties and a shock collar to control her.
The girl returned to her North Conway home in July 2014.
