CHARLOTTE — A former death row inmate charged with kidnapping a North Carolina family will be held without bond until his trial.

Multiple media outlets report that an attorney for 52-year-old Jerry Douglas Case waived a detention hearing, which was scheduled for Monday in federal court in Charlotte.

Case is accused of abducting a 71-year-old Gastonia man, his 28-year-old daughter and two of his grandchildren from a Belmont fishing area.

William Payne and his family escaped after they stopped at a service station near Gaffney, S.C. Case was caught after a shootout with authorities.

Case was sentenced to death in 1986, but a court threw out that conviction. He pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and was paroled in December 2007.
