Pair is being sought on abuse charges

A Frannie man has dropped off the map while facing two felony charges of child abuse.

That’s when city leaders — as part of budget-saving measures — chose not to replace an officer who left the agency.

Instead, Magistrate Judge Laurel Beeler chose to keep Cardwell in federal custody and entrust the transportation arrangements to the U.S. Marshals Services.

Ultimately headed to Wyoming

Hospital CEO-turned-fugitive Paul Cardwell arrived back in the United States around mid-day Wednesday in the custody of FBI agents.
