Business Partner Is Charged Kidnaped Wife Is Found Kidnap victim is freed JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - After four days of helplessness -- bound, gagged and blindfolded in dense woodland - Sheri Linda Jaffa, the kid- naped wife of a wealthy land developer, wasn't sure she could trust her rescuers. Even as Jacksonville Police Chief Matt Touchton worked with knife and scissors to cut her bound wrists early Sunday, Mrs. Jaffa demanded to see his badge. The men who abducted her last Wednesday had been dressed as policemen. But the rescue was real, and herhusband, Richard, was soon at her side. "I can't recall what she said when we first saw each other. The big thing is seeing. We kissed and it was the greatest kiss we ever had," her husband said. Jack McWilliams, 39, the brother of Jaffa's business partner in a Jacksonville contracting business, was charged with the kidnaping and held under $750.000 bond. He was arrested in jail, where he was serving a weekends-only jail sentence imposed in another case. Investigators said Mrs. Jaffa's rescue in a wooded area came after McWilliams' girl friend, Edith Burton, 22, broke down under questioning at the jail in Macclenny, 30 miles west of Jacksonville. "She drew us a map to lead us to the spot but I took her in my car and made her show us," Asst. State Ally. Wayne Ellis said. Mrs. Burton, who told police she helped in the abduction, hid under a cover in the back seat of the car because she didn't want to see Mrs. Jaffa again, Ellis said. "We called o u t . . . heard her groan and found her," Ellis said. It was just a mile from her home. Mrs. Jaffa, 35, was hospitalized for exposure and abrasions but was reported in good condition and high spirits today. Rescuers said Mrs. Jaffa was badly bitten by mosquitoes and scraped on the back and head from trying to work herself loose from the post to which she was tied, which was similar to a railroad tie and six-feet tall. Her bonds were nailed to the post. "She wanted to know if her husband and children were all right," Touchton said. "She was in excellent condition for the situation. She had been exposed to rain, heat, cool nights and the tape over her eyes and mouth which naturally makes the skin sore." Jaffa said his wife will not meet with reporters to discuss her ordeal. "The most important thing is to get life back to normal," Jaffa said. "She Is already discussing a possible European vacation." ., After the kidnap, Jaffa received a $200,000 ransom demand. He got $50,000 together, and a trail of notes directed him to leave the money at a spot in the Ocala National Forest. The money was never picked up, and when the kidnapers made no further contact, Jaffa and his two children made a televised appeal for Mrs. Jaffa's release. FBI agent Arthur Nehrbass said the accused man, a native of Lumpkin, Ga., is the brother of Aubrey E. McWilliams, a partner with Jaffa in Spectra Builders.
