A Miller County man facing almost two-dozen charges related to the kidnapping of a five year old boy last spring will not be tried here until after his March 8th trial in New Mexico. Mark Cochran faces 23 charges in New Mexico and three in Missouri.
His girlfriend, the boy’s mother, faces 24 charges in New Mexico and three more here. The charges in New Mexico stem from a police chase in which shots were fired before the pair abandoned their car, leaving the boy inside. No dates have been set for her case in New Mexico because authorities are waiting on a competency report.
